Trans Pride NI runs the Trans Information Directory that lists trans-friendly businesses and organisations in Northern Ireland online. Please contact us if you would like your business or organisation to be listed.

Trans Pride NI’s number one priority is the health and safety of everyone who attends or volunteers at our events. We have therefore made the responsible decision to cancel Trans Pride NI this year, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Nearly half of the people who attended Trans Pride NI were disabled and will therefore be greatly impacted by the UK Government’s social distancing and isolation guidelines. Trans Pride NI does not wish to put any vulnerable group at increased risk of contacting COVID-19 and will therefore not be holding a mass social gathering this year.

These are just a few of the items you can buy from our online shop on Red Bubble to support our Pride.

Trans Pride NI uses Stonewall’s definition of “Trans people” which includes and is not limited to: Transgender, Transsexual, Gender-queer (GQ), Gender-fluid, Non-binary, Gender-variant, Crossdresser, Genderless, Agender, Nongender, Third gender, Two-spirit, Bi-gender, Trans man, Trans woman,Trans masculine, Trans feminine and Neutrois.
