Transfigurations is the group that I set up in Torbay in South Devon to help transgender and gender variant people come together in a safe place to discuss worries that may have in their lives.

A meeting place has been found in Torquay, South Devon and we initially plan to meet once a month, on the first Wednesday evening of each month.  The group will enable you to discuss any problems which you might be experiencing whether it is work related, problems with neighbours or concerns about your medical treatment - or any of the myriad of problems which can affect people who are thinking of, or going through, transition.

We hope to have discussions which will be lead both by members of the group and by outside people (eg by officers from the Devon and Cornwall Police Authority's diversity team) and demonstrations by people such as beauty/make-up experts. For transgender or transsexual men, we hope to get discussions led by a few trans men who have been transitioned for many years and will able to guide you with their considerable experience. The group is run by an experienced trans woman (who has been transitioned for over 40 years and so has plenty of experience).

The group is open to trans men and women - and all who fall under the transgender umbrella, so if you are a transvestite or cross-dresser, you will still be welcome to attend. Trans youth can also attend, but please contact Carol, the administrator, first before attending - either by email or by telephoning the group administrator. 

Transgender Youth/Transgender Children:
Whilst we welcome trans children and trans youth attending, in the case of children under the age of 12, we would only allow you to attend if at least one of your parents attends meetings with you. For trans youth between the ages of 12 to 18, then we would insist that a parent comes with you to your first and second meetings and then, subject to your parent's written permission, you may attend on your own.

The owner of the group has been CRB checked at advanced level and you are welcome to ask to view the CRB check for your satisfaction. If you would like to attend a group meeting on your own first, then we would welcome this too.



    1. Hi Simone,
      I hope you are keeping well, so busy with my own projects these days - Transfigurations being the latest thing which is devouring my time, but it is all OK, at least I am reaching out and helping people whilst they are still young and have a full life ahead of them.
      Take care
