This resource builds from a two-year long research project exploring the experiences of trans and gender diverse youth in post-primary schools in Ireland. This research was a collaboration between the School of Education, University of Limerick and the Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI). It was co-funded by the Irish Research Council and Marie Skłowdowska-Curie Actions as part of the “Collaborative Research Fellowships for a Responsive and Innovative Europe” (CAROLINE) programme.
