Can we talk? Trans community update and q&a: in-person

Please be advised that this is a trial in-person event – you can only attend if you have registered: https://www.outsavvy.com/event/6822/can-we-talk-in-person 

When: 23rd September 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Where: Glasgow

Following the easing of Covid restrictions we have been investigating the possibility of restarting in-person events at multiple locations across Scotland. Sadly we have only had limited success so far and this venue has been carefully chosen because the specific set up of the space allows for maximum flow of fresh air and ventilation .

Not quite ready for an in-person event? We are hosting online versions of this workshop on 19th and 30th September – Can we talk? Tickets, Multiple Dates – | OutSavvy

Are you trans and living in Scotland? 

As we creep toward the ‘new normal’ and the Scottish Government returns to business side-lined by Covid we invite you to join us for a trans community discussion and q&a.

Divided into two sessions the first will give you an opportunity to hear and ask questions about what Scottish Trans is doing, and give us us an opportunity to hear about what’s going on for you right now.

The second is a discussion and q&a about how we can all get involved to make things better

Join Vic and Oceana IN PERSON – GLASGOW – Thursday 23rd September @1830

Covid advisory – potential spread of infection through proximity

We are unable to completely mitigate this risk, but care has been taken in the selection of this venue to allow for maximum fresh air. Both sets of doors will remain open during the meeting, and we have restricted the number of participants to 15 to allow for reasonable distancing within the space (see image of the space below)

We kindly request that all participants able to do so wear a mask at the event and take a lateral flow test prior to attendance. Please do not attend if you have a positive result or think you may have symptoms. In the interest of safety for everyone, staff and participants are required to adhere to all current national and local guidance around Covid

If you don’t have them, you can order free lateral flow test kits here Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
