Gegi.ca lets youth who may be experiencing gender expression or gender identity discrimination know that they are not the problem, and that it’s likely that school rules, procedures or other structures might be the problem instead. In doing so, the project actively supports access to justice. We encourage every student visitor to Gegi.ca to identify a supportive adult (see Strand D2 of The Gegi Curriculum
) who can walk beside them as they self-advocate. We hope this is their parent or guardian, which is obviously ideal, but research has repeatedly shown that many of the youth who might face gender identity discrimination, in particular (because they are transgender), may not be parentally supported.
