Run, jump, swim, play. How can we open up physical activity opportunities to trans and non-binary people?
 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Physical activity has positive mental and physical health benefits. And yet, physical activity can be unwelcoming to transgender and non-binary participants. A Pride Sports study (2016) showed that transphobic language, and the acceptance of transphobic banter, continue to pervade physical activity environments. Drawing on new research from Bournemouth University involving a local transgender social group Communi-T and their positive and negative experiences of swimming, our expert panel discuss what more can be done to open up physical activity opportunities to transgender and non-binary communities.

Speakers:
Dr Jayne Caudwell, Associate Professor, Department of Social Sciences and Social Work, Bournemouth University
Simon Croft, Director of Professional and Educational Services, Gendered Intelligence
Natalie Washington, Pride Sports

Chair:
Owl (Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir), Writer, Film maker and Campaigner
