London Gender Support (LGS) is a non-professional, not-for-profit organisation whose sole purpose is to support people in their journeys of self-discovery and gender exploration.
Anyone is welcome to attend an LGS group meeting, no matter how early or how late into their gender journey and where they see themselves in the grand gender spectrum. There are no strings attached to LGS, no membership fees, pledges or dress codes. There are no promises to make either. We are here to support each other and through love, tolerance and respect help gain a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
Living in a binary-led, often prejudiced society comes with a number of challenges. A lot of our internalised fears and phobias stem from things we have grown up with, things we try to challenge in these groups. Regular contact with other like-minded individuals on parallel journeys to ours can have a profoundly positive effect on our self-acceptance and understanding of gender possibilities.
By sharing our experiences equally amongst our group members, we encourage an egalitarian environment of love, tolerance and support. There are no leaders or even hierarchy in LGS. We share our stories honestly as we can, challenges and successes included, inspiring each other to flourish not despite but as a result of our gender variance and the vast beauty that comes with embracing it.
We hope you enjoy the meetings!
