Swiss Youth and Family Assistance (ASJF) has produced an awareness clip which highlights the difficulties encountered by trans people during their journey, in particular that of feeling legitimate in the face of transphobia. Around forty young people from French-speaking Switzerland took part in the project.

“In Switzerland, three quarters of trans and/or non-binary people have experienced discrimination or violence because of their gender identity during their lives,” the ASJF and Pro Junior Arc junior said on Thursday. The latter produced the clip as part of the Appel d’air project, in collaboration with Refuge-Neuchâtel.

The participation of young people and professionals was at the heart of the production of the clip. Around forty young people from French-speaking Switzerland participated in the project, 15 of whom shared their personal stories, to design a scenario close to their experiences.

The clip will be broadcast on social networks, in cinemas and during actions on the ground to meet young people and provoke reflection. This awareness tool is also available to schools and other institutions as a discussion support.

“By bringing the subject to young people and encouraging them to talk about it, the objective is to make the help resources as widely known as possible and to make their use common. The goal is to create a space where trans people and their loved ones feel supported,” the associations clarified. /ATS
