Identity (formally R-Trans) is the only social group covering Reading, Berkshire and the surrounding areas for those who seek peer support and friendship through transitioning.
As Reading’s longest-running Trans inclusive peer 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 Identity?
