Why talk to us?
As a team, we all have lived experience of being different, of trying to figure out what it is to be different. All of us have experience of what it’s like to be outside the heteranormative and cisgendered world, the descrimination, violence and shame that might be associated with it.
As a team, we have worked with and within the community and are best placed to understand. We are harnessing this experience and putting it in one place to provide empathic, non-judgemental therapeutic support for the community
