Gendered Intelligence

Gendered Intelligence (GI) mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity.

Our vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.

We work with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 8-25.

Gendered Intelligence Aims and Activities

GI’s aims are:

  • to increase the quality of trans people’s life experiences, especially those of young trans people
  • to increase the visibility of trans people’s lives and to raise awareness of trans people’s needs, especially those of young trans people, across the UK and beyond
  • to contribute to the creation of community cohesion across the whole of the trans community and the wider LGBT community throughout the UK
  • to engage the wider community in understanding the diversity and complexity of gender

We do this by:
