Welcoming space for transgender, non-binary, intersex and other gender-non conforming people
& Axel Pedersen-Nielsen
11:30 - 13:30
This space has been created to enable trans and non-binary attendees to get to know each other a little and build some supportive networks.
We will talk about how it feels to be in cis-dominated space and explore what support we can offer each other as well as identify what support might be available from the organisers. Starting with some simple grounding/manifesting exercises, we will take time to think about what tools we can use to help us to articulate our needs and expectations.
