Transfigurations – A Transgender Support Group Based in Devon, UK
Supporting transgender people of all ages – and their parents throughout the South West – and beyond
Transfigurations is a transgender support group based in the South West of the UK. It was set up to help all trans people (transsexual, transvestite, intersex, genderqueer, trans youth etc.) come to terms with their gender identity and provide a safe meeting place whilst they explore their feelings. We meet twice a month in Torquay, South Devon, on the first Wednesday evening and the third Tuesday evening of each month. We also cover the Plymouth and Exeter areas and have trans members who travel from those areas.
All of our official documentation regarding our Constitution and Safeguarding Policies can be found by clicking on the “Other” link button at the top of the page and then choosing “Policy Documents”.
Transfigurations is open to trans men and women – and all who fall under the transgender umbrella. If you are a transvestite or cross-dresser, you will still be welcome to attend. People who identify as being intersex and supporters of transgender people are also welcome to attend meetings. We have recently some wonderful endorsements from visitors to our site and our meeting groups which you can read here.
We now have a special group catering for transgender children and youth, more details are available on this page.
Meetings with guest speakers:
We hope to have discussions which will be led both by members of the group and by outside people (eg by officers from the Devon and Cornwall Police’s diversity team) and demonstrations by people such as beauty/make-up experts. For transgender or transsexual men, we hope to get discussions led by a few trans men who have been transitioned for many years and will able to guide you with their considerable experience. The group is run by an experienced trans woman (who has been transitioned for over 40 years and so has plenty of experience).
Transgender Youth/Transgender Children:
Unfortunately the children’s and youth group has had to be cancelled at present due my illness. It might be revived at some point by the new people who run the group. At this moment in time only the adults (18+) group remains in operation.
Parents of Transgender Children and Trans Youth:
The owner of the group has been DBS checked at advanced level and you are welcome to ask to view the DBS check for your satisfaction. If you would like to attend a group meeting on your own first, then we would welcome this too – or, should you prefer to meet up first for an informal chat over a cup of coffee, then I would be happy to do this.
