I WANT TO SHOW YOU A BODY: THINKING THROUGH GENDER, BODIES AND BUILDING DIFFERENT WORLDS

My explorations of gender through drag were showcased as part of this project at Tate Modern and are referenced in this wonderful resource. Please do share it with any teachers and schools you know!

"I WANT TO SHOW YOU A BODY by artist Linda Stupart aims to encourage gender emancipation within schools, where young people are given the freedom to define who and what they are. It hopes to extend opportunities for discussions, with and for young people, for whom gender is central to their sense of identity. It also recognises the large part schools and teachers play within these conversations.

This resource has been devised in collaboration with Tate and Gendered Intelligence, an organisation committed to increasing understanding of gender diversity. Gendered Intelligence’s vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender behaviour. I WANT TO SHOW YOU A BODY aspires to bring that world closer.

This publication is a teachers’ resource seeking to make visible, champion and celebrate gender diversity. It offers accessible art-making activities for the gallery and classroom, as well as practical and safeguarding advice for teachers who want to support open and inclusive conversations about gender with young people."
