The Trans Tearoom comes to Birmingham this spring

Catherine Muxworthy March 10, 2023

A brand-new trans-led project, the Trans Tearoom, will be opening in Birmingham city centre in April this year. The community space for gender fluid, non-binary and trans people across the West Midlands will initially offer a weekly drop-in space on Wednesday afternoons, and their aim is to provide a range of different spaces online and in-person to support the community.

The leadership team so far includes: Adam Khan (They/Them), chair of trustees; Milo Spearman (They/He), Secretary; August Gawen (He/Him), Treasurer; and Catherine Sharman (She/Her), Volunteer Project Co-Ordinator. Ahead of their launch in April, the Trans Tearoom are also currently recruiting additional trustees and volunteers, which you can find out more about on their website.

When the Trans Tearoom opens in early April, it will be home to a social meeting space for refreshments as well as a clothes shop where people can purchase gender-affirming clothing and accessories on a pay-as-you-can basis.
