About TREC

TREC is an independent organisation based in Manchester that provides a wide range of monthly programming and empowerment opportunities for the Trans community in a safe and accessible space.  TREC welcomes all Trans people (18+) and anyone else who feels that the gender assigned to them at birth incorrectly or incompletely describes their gender. We also have activities for partners, friends, families and allies.

If you would like more information or are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
