what this isThe intention behind TransBristol is to create a safe space where trans identified people in the Bristol area can share ideas, provide support and plan things. This WordPress site will act as a platform for ordering and accessing information . There is a Facebook group where you can input ideas and discuss stuff. There is also an e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to develop in a non-hierarchical, co-operative and consensual decision-making sort of way. If you want to get involved, that would be great. If you want to stand at the side, that’s also fine.
