The role of social media in facilitating anti-gender mobilizing and their impact on TGDI movements

We want to explore the impact of global anti-gender movements on trans, gender diverse (TGD) and wider LGBTQI mobilizing and rights and the role of social media in facilitating anti-gender mobilizing and discourses.

The anti-gender movement is an international movement which opposes what it refers to as gender ideology, gender theory, or genderism (Kováts, Eszter, 2016). Today, social media plays a huge role in disinformation currencies that perpetuate anti-gender mobilizing. If you’re a trans or gender diverse person, is very likely that you’ve encountered anti-gender movements. We’re creating a survey to collect data that can help us counteract these movements, and we need your help! This survey was created for people who are part of organizations or unregistered collectives working on trans, gender diverse or wider LGBQ communities and issues.

It takes about 20-30 minutes to fill out this questionnaire. You are welcome to send us your complaints or other types of feedback to research@gate.ngo. Considering the safety issues in many contexts relating to reporting on anti-gender opposition and/or being an activist or a community member, you will have the opportunity to stay anonymous. This is also available in Russian and Spanish.
