All About Trans is a not-for-profit project run by the charity On Road, involved in positively changing how the media understands and portrays trans people.
Since 2011, the All About Trans project looks at creative ways to encourage greater understanding between trans people and media professionals to support better, more sensitive representation in the UK media.
The media’s portrayal of trans people has traditionally relied on sensationalism and inaccuracy, fueled by a widespread lack of understanding of trans issues. All About Trans aims to establish connections between the trans community and the media and offer support to improve portrayal. Through these relationships and collaborations, a dialogue can be created that brings about better, more accurate and positive representation.
The project offers the trans* community a platform to speak out against the prejudice they may experience and promotes engagement between the wide diversity of trans* voices and the media. In the long term, All About Trans aims to create a movement towards fair treatment and greater understanding that can sustain itself.
