Presentation by Sam Feeney for the Trans* Emerging Trends Conference 2014 with reference to recent court cases where young people have been convicted of serious sexual offences because they have not disclosed the sex they were assigned at birth prior to sexual contact.

Description from YouTube

An estimated one in every hundred adolescent young people describe themselves as trans* or gender variant. Recent population data suggests this means there are 74,000 trans* or gender variant 10-19 year olds in the UK today. The vast majority of these may well not be apparent or be considered as LGB. With access to the internet and social media trans* young people now have the opportunity to create their emergent felt gender identity as their new selves and interact with others, form relationships in that way.
