Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a charity. We were originally a Community Interest Company, established in 2008.
Our mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity.
Our vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.
We work with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 8-25.
