Who we are
We’re a newly formed not-for-profit organisation focusing on supporting and campaigning for the human and civil rights of trans people in Northern Ireland. Our organisation is new but we’re composed entirely of experienced trans rights campaigners, policy experts and community development pros.
We grew out of a need for a truly trans-led advocacy platform in Northern Ireland to represent trans rights issues as best as possible. We’re focusing on public campaigns, strategic policy and community development, while providing services and support to other organisations that need it.
What we do
We support and advocate for the rights of trans people in Northern Ireland, through community building, leading campaigns for social and administrative change, working with government and the community sector to improve policy and inclusion, and by giving trans people in Northern Ireland a platform, resources and the skills needed to self-advocate and bring about change. We also run the Belfast Trans Resource Centre and assist other trans organisations to develop, grow and become more sustainable.
Get support yourself
We operate an online directory of support for trans people and their families, and for professionals in Northern Ireland. Please see the options below or get in touch.
