There is life outside and after support groups!We offer community events and get together where everyone can mingle, network and just be!
Be True 2 Me firmly believes in the power of meeting face-to-face, but that is not always possible. We understand that isolation is major issue facing many trans people.
Be True 2 Me therefore offers groups on WhatsApp and Facebook, which allow community members to reach out, share information and chat with each. We also get direct messages and WhatsApp queries daily from members of the trans community, and we try to provide assistance or make appropriate referrals where possible. We may refer you to online groups or to our Website if these will provide you with the relevant information.
