It’s not everyday you get a letter in the post inviting you to Number 10 Downing Street to rub shoulders with the Prime Minister. But thats exactly what happened to Gina, the founder of Transpire.
The reception was about showing how the government supports the LGBTQ+ community and invited representatives from all over the UK.
London Pride is an amazing event and we were really excited to be taking part in this years parade to raise awareness of Transpire and our mission for supporting trans people, their family and friends and the wider LGBTQI+ community.
We organised a coach to transport our supporters to the event (and get them back home safely after). Flying the flag with pride we marched through London holding hands in solidarity for what we believe in, that no one should feel isolated. For some of our members it was an emotional and overwhelming experience to be cheered by the thousands of people that came out to show their support. The love and positive energy was an amazing experience both during and after the parade.
From all of us at Transpire a big thank you to everyone that made London Pride 2017 an awesome experience. See you next year!
