In the context of growing uncertainty and anxiety surrounding trans-inclusive practice in the cultural sector, the University of Leicester’s Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG) – working with a team of legal scholars and experts in inclusion, equality and ethics – developed comprehensive guidance on advancing trans inclusion for museums, galleries, archives and heritage organisations that launched in September 2023. The development of the guidance was funded via the Economic and Social Research Council and received the backing of more than 20 leading sector support organisations.
 
The guidance, intended for anyone working with or in museums, galleries, archives and heritage, sets out an ethical framework to support cultural organisations to advance trans inclusion, addressing four key, interlinked areas
  • How can we develop trans-inclusive displays, events and public programming?
  • How can we generate a trans-inclusive organisational culture?
  • How can we provide a warm welcome to (and ensure the safety of) trans visitors?
  • How can we work with trans communities to advance trans inclusion?
