CREDITS AND THANK YOUS

Young trans and non-binary people, academics and artists have all worked together on this project. We’d like to thank – 

All the trans and gender diverse young people who shaped the project at the initial history workshops.

The older trans and gender diverse people who shared their stories and the younger trans and gender diverse people who interviewed them. 

The trans and gender diverse young writers who made up the Writer’s Room – both the in-person and online versions – in which the characters and overall themes of the piece were developed. 

Bon O’Hara (Gendered Intelligence), Dr Ruth Pearce, Faryal Velmi for helping to shape the project in crucial ways.
