National Trans Youth Forum Report 2015.

The first ever National Trans Youth Forum took place at Trinity College Dublin and BelonG To Youth Services on July 15, 2015. The event was attended by 55 young persons from all parts of the country, and was intended to create a platform for discussing the legal, social and political issues which affect trans youth in modern Ireland. The Forum was initiated as a Trinity College Dublin Equality Fund (‘the Fund’) programme, and was a joint partnership between four organisations: The Fund, Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI), BelonG To Youth Services (‘BeLonGTo’) and the Irish Transgender Student Alliance (ITSA). In addition, the Forum received generous financial support from ILGA-Europe. In parallel with the National Trans Youth Forum, the Organising Committee, co-ordinated by TENI, circulated an online National Trans Youth Survey (‘the Survey’) during the month before and after the Forum. The Survey was completed by 161 young people and, with the permission of TENI, the results, where relevant, are reproduced in this report.
