Scottish Trans Forums

We hold conferences, parliamentary receptions, roundtables and other forum meetings:

  • To increase networking and knowledge sharing between individuals and organisations from across Scotland who are interested in trans equality and human rights;
  • To increase consultation of a diverse range of trans people from across Scotland about their priorities and viewpoints in regard to trans equality, rights and inclusion;
  • To increase the active involvement of a diverse range of trans people in steering the development of, and volunteering within, the work of the Scottish Trans Alliance.

Our next Scottish Trans Forum will be announced here soon

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our Scottish Trans Forums are currently taking place online using Zoom. We’re in the middle of planning our next forum and will announce the details here soon.

What Makes Great Care?

Scottish Trans Alliance, LGBT Health & Wellbeing and Stonewall Scotland, in partnership with the National Gender Identity Clinical Network for Scotland (NGICNS) and NHS Scotland, held this online forum for trans men, trans women and non-binary people currently attending or waiting to attend Scottish Gender Identity Clinics.

Over 50 trans people attended to share their views and help us plan work to improve NHS gender identity services. Health professionals attended from all four Scottish Gender Identity Clinics and from NHS National Services Scotland.
