The Renaissance group that meet has over 100 members with 24 to 34 Tgirls (and the occasional F2M) at most meetings. The membership is a great mix of ages and TVs & TSs.
Renaissance is taken from the French for Re-Birth: our group was formed to help trans people to come out and be themselves in a safe environment and find support in their journey.
The group started over 18 years ago with only 6 people at the first meeting. The first meeting was organised by Suzanne Dee Gallagher at a friends beauty salon in a small town north of Preston, handy for both Preston and the Fylde coast.
Renaissance Blackpool run meetings that provide a safe and friendly environment for trans people (TV/TS/TG – M2F & F2M) to be themselves, meet like minded people, make new friends.
Partners are also most welcome at the meetings.
From the first meeting Renaissance has always welcomed both Transsexuals (TSs) and Transvestites (TVs). The owner of the salon gave the group its name – Renaissance.
Meetings are currently held in Blackpool at the The Gynway.
