Getting Here: We will meet you at Southern cross station at 11am, on the corner of Spencer Street and Collins Street. We will help you get to the venue and back afterwards!

We are right next to the Docklands Library. Our venue is called ‘Knowledge Market’ Shop 8-10, 892 Bourke Street, Docklands VIC 3008

Access: Our venue is fully accessible, toilets included. The 11 Tram goes down Collins St and ends in an accessible stop. We are 100m from the stop. We have air-conditioning and are smoke free.

‘Trans femme’ might be a new word for some people, here’s what it means: those who were assigned male at birth (AMAB), but do not identify as such. Also included are gender diverse Indigenous and/or People of Colour (IaoPoC) who’s cultures do not connect with the cis/trans binary and therefore the label AMAB would not apply for them. These identities may be called transfemme, transgirl, transwoman, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, agender, androgyne, bakla, hijra, sistergirl, fa’afafine, two spirit, kahtoey, whakawahine and more!

Still questioning your gender identity? You are so so welcome! This will be a judgement free space for you to explore your gender and be supported! ♥
