about us

We’re a south London based social group. Our main meeting is once a month in the Croydon area; we also hold other social gatherings and events in south London.

The group is open to all trans* and gender non-conforming people, however they identify or express themselves, including those who identify as transgender, transsexual, transvestite, cross-dressers, non-binary or gender fluid, anyone questioning their gender, or those who are affected by this. We also welcome friends and family, significant others and allies.

Please note that we aim to offer a safe space. If you are an admirer looking to meet trans* people for company please DO NOT contact us: you will be turned away.

I understand that TransPALS is a safe space for trans people and I am not an admirer seeking company.
