As Reading’s longest-running Trans inclusive support and social group, we’ve built a trusted rapport with our members based on trust, sensitivity and respect, being a fully inclusive and supportive service.

What is R-Trans?

R-Trans is Reading’s only social and support group for like-minded people who identify under the Trans* umbrella as Transgender, Transsexual, Transvestite or as Gender Fluid.

R-Trans meetings take place in a safe and secure location at The Rising Sun Arts Centre

Today is International Pronouns Day. Taking the time to ask about and use a person’s correct pronouns is an act of loving-kindness. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns, especially for transgender and non-conforming people, can negatively affect that person’s emotional well-being.If you need help with gender pronouns, please call our helpline on 0118 321 911 or use our contact form www.supportu.org.uk/contact-us/. We are open Monday to Friday, 10am – 7pm.#wellbeingwednesday #internationalpronounsday #pronouns #lgbtsupport ... See MoreSee Less
