All About Trans: Interaction with Emmerdale

This All About Trans interaction* will take place with ITV’s Emmerdale team. It will be carried out and led by the interaction team, made up of trans and non-binary people. The facilitator will be Paris Lees.

*An interaction is a method for engagement we have developed over the last five years with our project All About Trans – which has increased the visibility of transgender people in the UK media. It is a relaxed, social meet-up between a senior media or sector professional and someone with personal experiences to share. Each event lasts no longer than 2 hours and has a maximum of 24 participants.

The aim is that the personal connection will change attitudes and behaviour both on and off screen. The relationships created have led to consultations on HR policies, scripts and storylines, the support of trans people in the workplace, factual/fictional programming and off-screen opportunities. They have also led to more visible media appearances in broadcasting and raised awareness of trans and non-binary matters internally. For more information, you can have a look at the project’s website:
