These two All About Trans interactions* will be with BBC North West. They will be carried out and led by the interaction team, made up of trans and non-binary people.
A blog about the meeting will be available shortly after the event. Follow @AllAboutTrans on Twitter to keep updated with the work.
*The interactions will take place from August 2016 to February 2017. This is part of All About Trans: Phase Three. 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 experience to share. Each event lasts no longer than 2 hours and has a maximum of 20 participants.
The aim is that the personal connection will change attitudes and behaviour. The relationships created have led to consultations on scripts and storylines, the production of factual/fictional programming and off-screen opportunities. They have also led to more visible media appearances in broadcasting or print for activists. For more information, you can have a look at the project’s website: www.allabouttrans.org.uk
