Gender Identity Conference 2018

 

GENDER IDENTITY CONFERENCE

Saturday 23 June 2018

Who do we think we are? Understanding new gender identities amongst children and young people

Trans. Non-binary. Gender-fluid. Gender-queer.

The number of words being used by children and young people to describe their gender identities increases every day. But what do these words mean for the children and young people that claim them and how should we respond? This community conference is open to anyone who wants to learn about how children and young peoples’ gender identities are changing and what this means for us as professionals, volunteers, parents/carers, friends and our families.

There will be time between speakers to ask questions, talk through what we have heard in smaller groups, share our experiences and imagine different ways of working and being with trans and gender-fluid children and young people.
