In November 2015, we hosted a conference to share learning from Trans*Form Cymru. The day included keynote speeches from Fox Fisher and Lewis Hancox (co-founders of My Genderation films) and Sally Holland, Children’s Commissioner for Wales. Delegates also had the opportunity to attend a range of workshops facilitated by the Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES), Mermaids, The Diversity Trust, Umbrella Gwent and Viva LGBT.

The conferenced closed with a performance of Humanequin and Q&A with members of the Trans*Form Steering Group. Humanequin, created in partnership with Mess Up the Mess, explores the everyday experiences of trans* young people and their hopes for the future.

“Thank you for inviting us to take part in what was a really excellent and very well organised event. I really appreciate all your work on this project, you have done some really brilliant work and the voices of the young people involved are showing that very clearly”

“I just wanted to thank you for hosting Trans*Form Cymru conference yesterday. I learnt so much from the workshops, speakers and the young people who really put their message across so well. I hope that this will become an annual event”

“A big thank you to everyone involved for their inspiration, courage and enthusiasm. Congratulations on a wonderful awareness / training day”
