TransLeeds: By Trans People For Trans People
TransLeeds exists to make the lives of the trans and nonbinary people in Leeds as easy and happy as they can be. The events and services we provide aim to overcome issues trans people may face, and increase the joy in our community
What we do
TransLeeds supports all transgender, nonbinary and gender expansive people over 18 in Leeds and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately we can't support anyone under 18, however both Gendered Intelligence and Mermaids do offer support to under 18s in Leeds.
We run four support groups a month (contact us for location details):
First Monday- Main Month Group- Leeds City Centre. Open to everyone under the trans umbrella.
First Thursday- Non-binary+ Group - Leeds City Centre. Open to everyone whose gender is partially or wholly outside the binary.
Fourth Wednesday- Masc Group- Leeds City Centre. Open to everyone whose gender is masc-leaning.
Fourth Wednesday- Fem Group- Leeds City Centre. Open to everyone whose gender is fem-leaning.
Boardgaming- Second Sunday- contact us for location.
Karaoke- once every 3 months- see events page for more details.
Other social events will be listed on the events page.
We can help with any problems you may encounter due to being under the trans umbrella. For example, we can help you access bridging hormones, with gender clinic appointments, with workplace issues, housing, asylum claims, or with anything else you might need. Please contact us for more details.
We donate binders to anyone who needs one but can't buy one for any reason. Our binder library officer can measure you or show you how to measure yourself at a drop-in session.
• Drop-ins: 6-8pm on the first Monday and fourth Wednesday of every month (contact us for location details)
Donations of pre-owned binders in good condition are very welcome. You can drop them off at a drop-in or get in touch to arrange a collection.
We provide trans awareness and bespoke training packages to other organisations for a small fee. Please see our training page for more details
