The Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) seeks to improve conditions and advance the rights and equality of trans people and their families. We offer a range of support services that aim to increase the well-being of trans people and their families by providing support that tackles common experiences of isolation, misunderstanding and exclusion. As part of our work we are focussing on community initiatives that encourage expression, resilience and mental health.This zine making workshop offers a fantastic opportunity for trans people to meet, socialise and create valuable content that can meet these needs both for those that create and the wider community who can enjoy the finished product.
|| CORK GENDER REBELS ||
Gender Rebels Cork meets once a month for offer peer support in Cork Community Art Link on the second Monday of each month at 7pm. This is a safe space for those that are looking for support and to share their stories. In-between these peer supports there is a social meet up somewhere around Cork, so far, we have gone to get coffee, played board game, visit galleries and so on. Gender Rebels Cork is peer lead group that believes in inclusion and not exclusion as there is no one single way of being. We are not here to gate keep anyone from our community as we feel that those who have a gender outside the binary cis genders face enough gate keeping as is.
