Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund
Transpire, Southend on Sea
Transpire is a non-profit community group which supports transgender persons, their friends and family and the wider LGBTQ+ community in the Southend-on-Sea and surrounding areas. The group was formally constituted by its voluntary members in June 2016. One of our guiding principles is that no one should feel alone or isolated. It is our aim to provide a safe, friendly environment where people can meet and ‘be themselves’ without fear of prejudice or judgement. We hold regular ‘meet and eat’ social events which has only been possible thanks to the kind generosity of local businesses that support our cause. Due to their growing popularity, we are now expanding to include additional themed meetups where members can share their passion and skills with the group.

As a voluntary community group we're always reliant on the genoristy of our members and supporters. Every donation we receive enables Transpire to provide and grow our services for the trans and wider LGBTQ+ community. It's been a busy year so far for the team. We've established a working relationship with a number of local schools, providing support and education. We've hosted a number of presentations from photography to HIV awareness. The Transpire team have also been physically interacting with the local community, pitching for raffle prizes and raising awareness of our group at events. Our content creation team have also been busy creating and sharing stories on our website. If awarded, the money will go towards the running costs of Transpire. Helping to cover costs for educational leaflets to use at presentations and school visits. The running of our website and travel costs for team members who provide on location support and chaperoning.
