TransBareAll as an organisation is rooted in the principles of body positivity, sex and intimacy, and emotional well-being. So our next retreat is going to focus on our bodies and will explore “Feminine Masculinities and Other Complex Creatures.”

In this retreat we take a playful look at gender in its multiplicity - blending masculinity and femininity, holding multiple gender experiences simultaneously, and exploring the ways we express and experience the complexities of our genders. This will be a celebration, connection and exploration!

It is open to anyone who self-identifies as being on the trans spectrum – eg. trans masculine, trans feminine, trans man, trans woman, FTM, MTF, transgender man, transgender woman, transsexual man, transsexual woman, man with a trans history, woman with trans history – and non-binary / genderqueer people.

If you require a personal assistant to come with you who doesn’t identify as this, please talk to us. We want to do everything we can to make this accessible.

We positively welcome people of colour.
