WHAT IS TRANSPARENT PRESENCE CIC?
Transparent Presence CIC is a transgender and non-binary support group in Cornwall which aims to build confidence and well-being through coming together to provide guidance. We specialise in supporting parents and families, recognising that everyone has their own journey to take and deserves to have this validated.
We meet on the first Monday of each month in St Austell to provide a space to come together, building strength through shared experiences and friendship. There are additional opportunities across Cornwall to get together for walks, beach meets and other experiences.
The Transparent Presence CIC Ally Scheme signposts 'safe spaces' for the LGBTQ+ community. We accept nominations from the community and from businesses themselves via our Facebook page or website.
In 2021, Transparent Presence founded an LGBTQ+ inclusive choir called Vocal Presence who have performed at several Cornish Pride events and continue to make a positive impact for people to find their voice.
In October 2022 we secured National Lottery funding to start a youth and parents support project that we are calling TYP.
Transparent Presence was founded in 2019 by Annie and Elliot and became a Community Interest Company in 2021.
