Into the Outside Resource: Trans Experience

Trans Pride Brighton celebrated its fifth anniversary this year with an ever-growing crowd celebrating gender diversity and promoting visibility of the trans community.

Into the Outside: resources for teachers and youth workers

As part of this project a series of education resources were developed that offer guidance, advice and ideas for professionals working with young people who want to raise awareness of and explore LGBTQ+ issues.

The activities are suitable for youth workers and teachers working in a range of settings with young people aged 13+. They can be used to support professionals running LGBTQ+ youth groups, delivery of the Citizenship or PSHE Curriculum in school, or for general youth work.

There are nine resources organised under relevant themes that draw on the first hand experience of the young people who have contributed their voices and personal artwork to our queer youth archive. Alongside this, activities also make use of the rich and engaging heritage material collected by Queer in Brighton, encouraging young people to explore LGBTQ+ history.

Each resource includes a series of high-quality, creative activities using discussion, photography and creative writing. You can find these resources on the Into the Outside website here or download an easy to print version below.

Trans Experience

Trans Pride Brighton celebrated its fifth anniversary this year with an ever-growing crowd celebrating gender diversity and promoting visibility of the trans community. National statistics identify trans children and young people as being particularly vulnerable, having to face higher levels of discrimination, and a range of daily challenges at school and beyond because so many people don’t recognise or understand gender diversity. Gender identity is broader and more complex than just male and female. The term ‘trans’ is used as a term that encompasses a range of identities that exist alongside what are considered typical gender norms. Trans is used to describe transsexual and transgender individuals, and also to describe people who may identify as gender fluid, non binary or intersex.
