Consultations, Awareness Raising, and General Moaning

We want to be able to bring the community together to get our voices heard, so please email us with any issues/ideas arising in Notts. If you’re cis and reading this, the bulletin is now going out to a LOT of trans folks so please consider including us in your consultation work and trans representation, rather than just asking one random person you happen to know.
