Genspect is an international alliance of professionals, parent groups, trans people, detransitioners, and others who seek high-quality care for gender distressed young people.
We have concerns about the currently popular “gender affirmative” approach and favour therapeutic approaches that offer a more exploratory approach to gender.
Uniting 20 different organisations in 18 countries, we don’t just speak for a few: we speak for thousands.

A different generation of students – with a different culture.

For educators working with young people, the ever-shifting language of gender and sexuality can be hard to keep up with. Schools and universities struggle to reconcile the needs of different groups – and teachers, counsellors and support staff get caught in the crossfire. We can help you strike the right balance.

Our focus


Across the world, clinicians, teachers, journalists, and other professionals seek the best support for gender-questioning children. We provide a space where respectful discussion of gender issues is encouraged, and we welcome trans people, detrans people, parents, and professionals who believe that a better way is possible.


Kids thrive best in open and supportive environments, with their parents included in decision-making wherever possible. They should be free to explore all aspects of their gender, sexual orientation and identity formation, without making permanent decisions. No-one is just a walking gender identity: we’re all far more complex than that.


We closely examine the role that the healthcare, media and educational establishments play in guiding vulnerable youth toward a singular explanation for their distress. We believe there are many routes into gender dysphoria – and many routes out.


Biological sex is real. The world works better when we use accurate information and terminology. We emphasis long-term health, and we push back against regressive sex stereotypes. There’s no right or wrong way to be a boy or a girl.


We are funded via our public fundraiser, and from private contributions from supporters of our work. We are committed to protecting the identities of everyone we work with, unless they choose to waive the right to their own anonymity. We are also committed to the principles of informed safeguarding and child protection.


We want to provide a platform for a more honest and open conversation at every level of society. We believe that it’s time for a genuine public dialogue about the complexity of gender, sexuality, and identity development – a dialogue where every voice can be heard.

Gender is the story of the moment. We’ll help you cover it.

Journalists want reliable info from reliable sources. With more and more news stories relating to trans issues, you need to get the details right. We can provide you with statistics, connections, and credible human interest stories, ensuring that your coverage is second-to-none.

As a clinician, you know that there’s more to life than identity.

With more and more kids identifying as trans or non-binary, therapists and doctors are worried that we’re losing sight of the bigger picture. Genspect brings an informed professional perspective, helping you provide a better – and deeper – level of care.

Get engaged

Across our culture, changing notions of gender have a real impact.

In such a fast-paced environment, civility, humour and open-heartedness quickly get lost. We’re interested in creating a slower and more thoughtful conversation – one in which the voices of different communities and generations all have the right to be heard.
