The Clare Project is pleased to announce the launch of our new series of information booklets, written by and for the trans, non-binary and intersex (TNBI) community.
The second of the series, on ‘Medical Transition’ can be downloaded below. We hope you find it interesting and useful.
How was the booklet made?
The booklet was designed and written by me, Luka White, a Training and Development Worker employed by the Clare Project.
Prior to writing, a consultation group of seven community members was recruited. We asked them:
1. What does medical transition mean to you?
2. What important topics should the booklet cover?
3. Is there anything you would not like to see in the booklet?
4. What can we do to make sure this booklet is accessible/relevant to as many TNBI people as possible?
Using their answers, we put together an initial draft of the booklet. We included quotes from community members, statistics from national TNBI organisations, illustrations by trans artist James Fox, and photos of TNBI people from The Gender Spectrum Collection. We then ran a second consultation to make sure that the community members felt happy with the result.
How will the booklets be available?
The booklets will be available online as a pdf on our website, and in printed format at TNBI events and local TNBI community spaces. Large Print will be available on request. We hope to make an audio version available in the future.
What topics will future booklets cover?
The next booklet topic will be an information booklet on ‘Information for friends and family of TNBI adults’. Previous booklets, namely our first booklet on ‘Self Care’, are available here.
Further booklet topics are yet to be decided but may include topics such as ‘Intersex Variations’ and ‘Neurodiversity in the TNBI community’.
If you would like to be a part of the consultation group for this booklet, or if you have an idea for the title of a future booklet, please contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest.
