The degree to which policy, practice and facilities accommodate trans and non-binary participants in outdoor programmes has been subject to limited research.  The outdoors can be a heavily gendered space, demonstrative of both heteronormativity and hegemonic masculinity.  This research explores current practice and the awareness, confidence and desire for inclusivity of residential practitioners, and reports on the lived experience of trans outdoor practitioners in the UK.  The findings should encourage outdoor providers to review their policies in relation to gender and to strive for explicit inclusivity in respect of accommodating and welcoming gender variant participants.
