Researching and Advocating for Quality Education: Achieving Equality for Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth in Schools

Project Description

This project aims to critically examine the experiences of transgender, or trans, youth in post-primary school settings in Ireland. It is being conducted in collaboration with Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) with the aim of furthering trans youth inclusion and equality in schooling. Data collection methods include arts-based workshops, interviews and participant-observation. The data gathered will be analysed using critical, queer and trans theory. A planned output of the project is a toolkit that will provide practice support for educators and schools to foster trans-affirmative school environments.
