There is little on offer in the Southend area of Essex, for the trans community, their families or friends. Feeling isolated can make people feel incredibly vulnerable, and sometimes there seems no place to turn to. But there is; simply by talking to other people, whatever their connection to the trans community can be a big help.
This facebook group aims to facilitate discussion and networking for:
- Members of the trans community, of all ages, young and old, whatever their gender identity and whatever stage in their transition they have reached (if at all) .
- People who might have a trans community member in their family.
- Friends of trans community members, who perhaps want to get a better understanding of how it feels to be a transperson, or just simply offer their support.
Nobody should feel isolated, and through education and better understanding this facebook page seeks to help people know they are not alone, to provide support and advice to anybody that might need someone to talk to or just want to have a few questions answered. If you feel shy or embarrassed, would just like to say hello or even ask about places to go out, feel free to post here.
We organize many varied events. We also have a monthly newsletter.
