“Following the Scottish Government’s announcement regarding the Gender Recognition Act last week, we are aware that there are inaccurate media messages that claim that the Guidance we produced on supporting trans young people in schools has been "scrapped".
Just to be very clear: the Guidance was produced by LGBT Youth Scotland and we have made no decision to withdraw it! It was produced in November 2017 and will certainly continue to be available until new guidance from the Scottish Government is in place.
We remain proud of the Guidance we produced. It has supported schools and young people across Scotland and we have had nothing but positive feedback from schools, parents or young people since it’s launch. Any new guidance will no doubt be built on the foundations of this great resource.”
