Glasgow Trans Support Programme

by LGBT Health & Wellbeing Claimed

Social Activity, Support Network, Mental Health Issues

We offer support to trans, including non-binary communities in Glasgow and the Lothians. We welcome trans female/feminine, trans male/masculine, genderqueer, non-binary identities as well as intersex people, people who cross dress and those who are exploring their gender identity. Anyone who lives in and outwith Glasgow can access our trans support programme, although all services are delivered in Glasgow.

- Individual support

You can access one to one support to find out about gender or transition related information. If you would like to discuss your needs and find out about support available then you can arrange a face to face appointment, chat to us on the phone, or get advice and information via email.
Contact: katrina@lgbthealth.org.uk or call 0141 271 2330

- Social events

We deliver a monthly social group in Glasgow, called T time. T time is an informal drop-in welcome to transgender, including non-binary, intersex people, those questioning their gender identity, and supporters. A great opportunity to meet new people, pick up information and chat over a cuppa in a safe, easy going and relaxed environment. Each month, we also deliver one-off optional activities for a wide range of interests.

T time Glasgow
Every 1st Saturday of the month | 1-4pm
At LGBT Health & Wellbeing, 12 Queen’s Crescent, G4 9AS

- Confidence workshops

We deliver quarterly workshops giving trans, including non-binary people the opportunity to build their confidence in different ways through a range of activities. Previous sessions have included a ‘Trans Swap and Shop’, a ‘Moving Forwards with Confidence’ and a ‘Sex, Relationships & Intimacy’ workshop. Contact: katrina@lgbthealth.org.uk or call 0141 271 2330

- Transition support courses

Two-day weekend course delivered annually in Glasgow, for anyone looking to explore their transition options in an open and safe, non-judgmental space. Facilitated by staff from the Transgender Support Programmes with support from our Mental Health team. Course takes place in Glasgow but is open to anyone, wherever you are based.

The course will provide safe and supportive opportunities to meet and connect with other trans or non-binary people, share your experiences, take part in confidence building workshops and learn more about your options and rights (a session with Scottish Trans Alliance is included).

We recognise that everyone’s journey is different – the course is not designed to tell you how to transition, but rather to give you space and time to think about your identity, how to keep yourself well and to equip you with information about your options.

If you would like further information, please contact: katrina@lgbthealth.org.uk or call 0141 271 2330

- Newsletter

T Monthly is a monthly newsletter with news, events and support opportunities for trans, including non-binary people across Scotland. There’s a fantastic range of other options for support available throughout Scotland and news items to keep you up to date, so we are delighted to advertise these.
