Gender Connect is a safe space and social networking event that has been created for transgender and non-binary individuals, who are autistic, have mental health conditions, and/or a learning disability (neurodiversity). This is an event that is exclusively for transgender or non-binary individuals, or those exploring their gender identity.
These events offer individuals the chance to connect with likeminded people, discuss and share stories, establish friendships, advocate in each other, and socialise in a safe space. The events are hosted at Le Village in Kemptown, Brighton – the heart of transgender and non-binary community.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite anyone you feel would benefit from this event. We believe this is a super exciting opportunity for these service users, and it will really help to enable, empower and contribute to living fulfilled lives. These events will occur once a month and will run on the last Monday of every month.
