FREE gender-affirming fashion workshops for the trans/non-binary community.

Fashion and presentation can be an amazing way to relieve dysphoria, and these workshops will be beneficial to both beginners and experienced DIY-fashionistas.
Attendees will leave with practical style tips and learn DIY techniques to create a gender affirming wardrobe!

Gender Moods and Fashion Feelings Workshop - Thursday 16th Feb 6:30-8pm

An interactive workshop that celebrates where you are now with a visual that inspires you to look forward to your future self!
