Switchboard and Survivors’ Network are setting up a project to support trans, non-binary and intersex survivors of sexual violence in Brighton and Hove. This project is trans-led and is in the early stages.
As part of this process, we’d like to make contact with more people from the trans, non-binary and/or intersex communities to hold interviews to gather thoughts to help inform the shape the project takes. These interviews will be open to all trans, non-binary and intersex people in the UK regardless of survivor status. Within that, we are particularly interested in hearing from Black people, homeless people, people of colour, people of faith, sex workers, survivors of sexual violence and people from the intersex community.
The interviews will be held between 20th August and 3rd September. Interviews can be done via video call, voice call or be written. We can be flexible depending on the needs of participants. If you’d feel most comfortable talking to a trans interviewer, that can be arranged. While this project is about supporting survivors, we will not be asking questions about traumatic experiences.
