Come as You Are is a social/support group run for the people who identify as Crossdressers and/or Transvestites.

Its aim is to provide a safe space for people like that to be themselves, express their feminine side and mingle with like-minded people and socialise.

We have facilities in the building for you to get changed (including a large well-lit mirror), our team is available to provide style and makeup advice and help you to get the best out of yourself and we're also available to chat over a cuppa if you need.

The format is fairly open, you are welcome to turn up whenever (but please allow time to get changed back if you want!), we will normally be found in the lounge chatting about a variety of issues and our hostess Alyssa usually tries to make sure everyone is engaged in some way.

We often have a guest coming along to provide something to talk about (e.g. makeup advice, skincare, styling etc.), or planning some other social event outside the monthly meetings.

Please note that this event is purely a social event. You are welcome to bring a supportive partner or friend with you if you need.
