YORK LGBT FORUM

TRANS SUBGROUP

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

We have been working hard to communicate by delivering talks with a number of organisations about trans issues and has regular subgroup meetings.

The team have been campaigning hard for transgender and non-binary recognition in the City of York Council’s health and wellbeing strategies.

The team were able to get trans issues into the Vale of York NHS Assessment.

TRANS & NON-BINARY CONFIDENCE WORKSHOPS

 

Designed to help people along their transition, these confidence workshops have been funded so we can offer them for free.

 

Do come along if you come under any of these categories, and also if you are questioning your gender, thinking about transitioning, or someone who dresses on a part-time basis, as there will be something of interest for you all.

 

Held weekly on Zoom at Mesmac 6pm – 8pm. This project is outsourced to Jake Furby trading as Diversity Enterprises and Dorothy Hodgkinson trading as Finding Perspectives. If you are interested in attending please email us at enquiry@yorklgbtforum.org
