School Revision is all about starting to imagine what school life for young, trans people could look like in the future. Organised in collaboration with Juno RocheWipe Out TransphobiaGendered Intelligence and All About Trans, the day-long event will be held in a primary school and planned around the daily life of gender variant school pupils. We are inviting participants from the trans community, education sector, local authorities and the media to take part in interactive lessons and workshops throughout the day. Lessons include Biology, P.E., Design & Technology, Drama, Media Studies and more.  These will be led by trans speakers and teachers and designed as if the education environment and curriculum was inclusive of trans and non-binary people. Check out the full schedule. Participants will have the opportunity to network and take useful resources, valuable learning and practical action points away with them which will be applicable in the workplace.

Free to attend and with refreshments and lunch provided, the event is held at Lark Hall Primary School in Stockwell, south London, on Saturday 11th June from 9.30am to 4pm. Places are limited in the school so please register your interest and tell us why you’d like to take part. For more information about the event  visit our website.

The Corpse Project: Gendered Intelligence

The Corpse ProjectThe Corpse Project

Trans and non-binary people are often faced with life difficulties in this overly gender binaried world. Consequently, there is little opportunity to explore how we deal with the trans and non-binary body after death.

Gendered Intelligence are looking for a small group of people who are over the age of 16 and would like to get involved.

We welcome trans people and our friends, family and allies.

It is open to people with any or no spiritual background and any opinions about the body after death.

The Corpse Project is a national research project asking ‘How can we lay our bodies to rest so they help the living and the earth?’ It is offering places to the Gendered Intelligence community to talk about trans bodies after death and to be part of its unique programme, supported by the Wellcome Trust.

Over four days in June, we will visit a crematorium, a cemetery and a funeral director, learn about rituals and make our own ‘rituals for the trans soul’. We will look at how to turn the body into compost, the pros and cons of burial and cremation, future technologies and about how various cultures through the world treat bodies in a specific and gendered way after death. This is a sensitive but interesting, universal and very urgent topic, as land for burial gets scarce and we need to protect the environment. It is also very important that our bodies are dealt with in a way which respects our identity when we are alive. We will make sure this is a creative, respectful experience for all participants. It will be thoughtful but not miserable and sometimes fun.

It will be led by Dr Sophie Churchill from The Corpse Project supported by Krishna Istha.

Saturday June 4th, 4pm to 7pm –  Opening Session at GI, 200a Pentonville Road, London, N1 9JP.
