TMSA-UK is an unincorporated charitable association that serves the Trans masculine community. TMSA was set up in 2011 to support those AFAB (assigned female at birth) who identify somewhere on the Trans masculine spectrum or Non Binary, through their social or medical transition using peer support via it's secret Facebook groups.
TMSA-UK has grown in recent years and now has over 2300 members! We're crowdfunding to raise the cash so that we can build TMSA's profile in order to reach more Trans people who may need our support.
TMSA is run entirely by volunteers who give their time, support and sometimes their cash in order to achieve the aims of the group. Our hard work was recognised and rewarded in 2015 when we won a NDA (National Diversity Award) for LGBT Community Organisation. http://www.nationaldiversityawards.co.uk/2015winners/
We're crowdfunding to help us reach more trans people who are isolated, vulnerable or struggling to cope with transition and the associated pressures. To enable us to continue our work we need to be able connect with those people through what ever means we can, attending trans prides around the UK, advertising our presence on the internet and setting up social groups. Our needs are pretty simple when compared to larger organisations.
Your donations will help us with -
More face to face support groups / venue hire
Stall costs at Trans Prides and other events
A new banner for Pride marches (our present one is 7 years old & outdated)
Travel reimbursement for our volunteers to attend / run events and social groups
A new event standard lightweight gazebo for stalls and events. (our present one is made of steel and a nightmare to transport)
Snacks, drinks, craft materials and trips to those who access the existing London social group.
Help us to improve mental health and emotional well-being and reduce social isolation.
If everyone donated just £1 this would go a long way toward improving the mental health and emotional well being of our members plus enabling us to continue to improve the organisation but most importantly helping us reach those who are socially or geographically isolated.
