Gender diversity in childhood and education: Towards a (trans)gender-sensitive school

This article focuses on the gender diversity in childhood and youth, aiming to map the difficulties and disadvantages faced by children and young people with diverse identities and gender expressions in the course of their school career. More than three dozen of trans(gender) adults were interviewed, describing their experiences as children and young people. Corroborating what has been found in other studies, the results point out to a panorama of strangeness, helplessness and even violence in school, which stress the need to implement measures specifically aimed at this problem, as well as its incorporation into tools and initiatives to fight sexism and gender stereotypes.
