Three young people, one wearing a trans flag, at Essex Pride

About this service

We have a fortnightly social group for trans and non-binary young people and those who are questioning their gender.

It's a safe space for you to talk about what's on your mind. Transcend is also a fun and relaxed space to socialise with other trans and gender diverse people. We meet on Zoom every other week from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. Even if you’re not sure of your gender yet, you are very welcome to join.

COVID-19 UPDATE: This group continues to meet online.
