Local Groups & Organisations

There are many other support groups, social groups and other organisations. Here is a list of the groups we are aware of currently and details on where to find out more about them.

Transfigurations

Transfigurations is a transgender support group based in Torquay.  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.  They meet twice a month in Torquay, South Devon, on the first Wednesday evening and the third Tuesday evening of each month.
