Our aim is to bring together transsexuals & others undergoing gender reassignment. Whatever stage you are at, from trying to decide to fully post-operative, we would like to hear from you. The gender reassignment process is a very demanding and difficult emotional experience, from struggling with the agony of belonging to the wrong sex all the way to recovering from major surgery. We are a self help group serving Bristol and the surrounding area.

Meetings at Wick Village Hall
The Bristol Crossroads group has been supporting the transgender community in and around Bristol, under various names, for over 25 years. The meetings are informal and provide the opportunity for all transgendered people (Transvestites, Crossdressers, Transexuals, both male-to-female and female-to-male) and their partners and family to meet and dress in a safe and supportive environment. There are changing facilities available for those who need them.
Not all transgendered people can dress at home or have the confidence to join the more public girls and boys at other venues. At a Crossroads meeting you can dress and chat with other people like yourself, learn new skills (e.g. makeup), find out about places that provide the special items that we need to make us in to the girl or boy we want to be (e.g. breastforms, clothes etc) and get information about other groups and activities that you may like to take part in.
If you are taking your first tentative steps out of the closet or have only been able to dress occasionally at home but you want to meet and chat with others just like you, or your family or partner would like to chat with others in their situation, contact us and come along to a meeting. It could be the start of a whole new world.

The intention behind TransBristol is to create a safe space where trans identified people in the Bristol area can share ideas, provide support and plan things. This WordPress site will act (for the moment, at least) as a platform for ordering and accessing information . There is a Facebook group where you can input ideas and discuss stuff. There is also an e-mail address:firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to develop in a non-hierarchical, co-operative and consensual decision-making sort of way. If you want to get involved, that would be great. If you want to stand at the side, that’s also fine. This site is a work in progress. Just at the moment, it’s just me, Dru, putting information in and hoping for the best. If there’s something you think should be on this site, let me know! Further admins will probably get involved later. The Facebook group is the place for free-for-alls. Play nicely! Update: been adding pages of info and links. They reflect my own perspective, and so are weighted in a slightly MtF way. Hopefully this will change as more people get involved. We want as many perspectives as possible. Binary, non-binary, genderqueer, whatever. Anything under the trans umbrella should belong here.
UK Trans Info are able to provide advice with practical problems such as access to healthcare and legal issues. We can guide you towards information you need and on occasion we can (with your consent) contact organisations on your behalf to resolve issues.

You can also ask questions in our Facebook group where you can get information from our volunteers and from other trans and non-binary people. This is especially useful if you would like multiple opinions on something.
