#TransMCR is a monthly event for the trans community at LGBT Foundation! #TransMCR is organised by LGBT Foundation with various trans groups and volunteers across Greater Manchester. This is a space for anyone who self-identifies as trans or non-binary and their friends and family.

Every month there are loads of opportunities to explore workshops, listen to talks and learn new skills as well as a range of advice drop-ins, holistic therapies and beauty treatments. Our Community Café is open throughout the day and is staffed by volunteers from local Trans groups in Manchester. Through funding we have recieved from The Big Lottery Fund and the support of our wonderful volunteers this event is absolutely free.

#TransMCR is a great way to meet other people who identify as trans, explore shared interests and get involved. We hope you have a fantastic time and we’re keen to hear your feedback for future events.

The next #TransMCR is the 8th and 9th of July.
