Write for SpunOut.ie's trans health & wellbeing campaign
SpunOut.ie is looking for anyone aged 16-25 who wants to help open up conversations about transgender health
In 2020, SpunOut.ie will be running a campaign which aims to support young trans people to live happy and healthy lives. We’re looking for young trans people or those questioning their gender identity to add your voice to the campaign!
Get involved in the campaign
- What do you do to look after your physical and mental wellbeing?
- Have you experienced transphobia and how have you dealt with it?
- What advice would you offer to someone trying to support their trans friend?
- How do you look after your mental health and what steps do you think others can take to do the same?
- What advice would you give to someone trying to access support services in Ireland?
We believe that young people across Ireland can help support each other by sharing their stories, lived experiences, advice and opinions. If you’re between 16 and 25 years old and living in Ireland, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in writing an article or making a video to support young trans people across Ireland.
Do I need writing experience?
You do not need any writing experience. We’ll help you out every step of the way giving you feedback and suggestions for your piece. Your piece will be posted on SpunOut.ie and our social media so that thousands of young people across Ireland will feel more supported.
What’s the campaign about?
It’s important that all young trans people have access to the support and information they need for their mental, physical and emotional health. With this campaign, we hope to support young trans people with information on how to prioritise their physical and mental health, build resilience and find support when they need it.
Young trans people are the main focus of this campaign, but we are also hoping to help young people supporting trans friends and family, create awareness of the difficulties faced by young trans people in Ireland and promote inclusion and celebration of trans people in all areas of Irish society.
Throughout the campaign, we’ll be posting articles and videos with lots of information and personal stories from young people on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
