Trans Mission: Leeds is proud to present our annual Leeds Pride Trans and Non-Binary Support Area. This takes place from 3:00pm on the 4th of August at the Sovereign Suite in the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
As ever our focus is on practical help and support for people on the trans spectrum. The Leeds Deed Poll service will be here again to provide people with on the spot deed polls. We'll have some of our peer support team on hand to help with emotional support and to answer any questions people may have. Our Trans-Lations team will also be available to support any family members, friends or loved ones of trans folk of any age.
The event aims to be inclusive of gender diverse folk regardless of any additional needs. To protect people with substance issues there will be no alcohol or drugs allowed in the space and people obviously under the influence will be asked to leave. The venue is wheelchair accessible and seating for those with mobility issues will be reserved. There'll be no music played in the Sovereign Suite so people will be able to chill and chat and we'll have a small area screened off so anyone experiencing sensory overload can take a few minutes to themselves.
Refreshments will be available, including vegan and gluten free items.
As an unfunded event we'll also have our fundraising stall with a range of items including keyrings, t-shirts, bracelets, mugs and jewellery.
Please do come along and show your support and let's ALL have an amazing Pride!
