Have your say on trans representation in the media

Hi there, please find below a request from All About Trans

“All About Trans is working with MA student Qiuling Liu, who has created a survey on trans people’s representation in the media. Alongside Jennie Kermode, the author of the original 2010 work, All About Trans Advisor Sarah Lennox and strategic planner and qualitative researcher Jo Shaw, they have been working with Qiuling to develop a survey that can allow trans people to share how they feel about media representation in the UK.

She’s asking what has changed in seven years? How are things better? What impact does the media have on trans people’s lives and wellbeing? How can trans advocacy organisations make a difference? This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about the media’s influence and impact on trans and non-binary lives – but they need your help. 

Will you take the survey, please? It’s linked here too: https://kclbs.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3WMbgv6RJwjTsgd

We’re asking trans* and gender questioning adults – 18 years plus – to take the survey. We’d also appreciate any sharing of the survey – help us spread the word! Open only until Monday 31st July, the anonymous survey takes a little time to complete, but is an excellent opportunity to express how the media might affect you or your family. Findings will be shared in September. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Qiuling (qiuling.liu@kcl.ac.uk) if you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey.

*‘Trans’ is used here as an umbrella term for the broad spectrum of people who feel they are gender variant in some way, including but not limited to transsexual, transgender, non-binary and gender queer people.”
