Launch of GenderEd.ie
The launch of GenderEd.ie was hosted by the Trinity College Dublin School of Nursing and Midwifery on May 17th 2017. GenderEd.ie is an online education programme for families of gender diverse children and transgender young people in the Republic of Ireland. It was developed as part of the PhD research of Danika Sharek, under the supervision of Dr Edward McCann and Sylvia Huntley-Moore, funded by the Irish Research Council. The education programme was developed in collaboration with Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI), BeLonG To Youth Services, families of transgender young people and transgender young people themselves. The programme aims to provide accessible information to help families support themselves and their transgender family member. A pilot evaluation of the programme is currently underway and all family members of gender diverse children and transgender young people are invited to visit www.GenderEd.ie to participate.
