I’m nervous, can I bring my cis (non trans) friend/partner?

It depends on the event. Some are open to anyone, whereas others are restricted on who can come along and we describe who the event is for on the publication for it. If the event is trans only, then we're afraid not. We know people may be nervous before coming along, but you won’t be the only one, (of course knowing that doesn’t necessarily help). We set up a closed Facebook event for people to start to chat and get to know each other before the event, so if you're on Facebook then you’ll be able to access that. If you’re nervous and there is anything that we can do to help, then please email us.
