Midlands charity Birmingham LGBT is hoping to encourage more members of the local Trans community to make use of its dedicated sexual health service.


Clinic Trans is held at the Birmingham LGBT Centre on the last Friday of every month, between 4pm and 7pm. It offers a welcoming, non-judgmental and Trans-aware space in which to access general sexual health screening, vaccinations and contraception advice.

Estimates suggest that one percent of the population are gender-variant in some way. While the number of people accessing support around general transgender issues is very high, those specifically accessing Clinic Trans is significantly lower, with only a handful of attendees per month.


Developed in collaboration with BLGBT and Umbrella Health, the clinic was designed by and for Trans people and will always have a Trans worker or volunteer available for anyone wishing to speak with a non-clinical member of staff. This is key for the Trans community, which has previously felt unable to access relevant help in mainstream sexual health services, where a perceived lack of understanding has left some users feeling under-served.

For more information, call 0121 643 0821 to speak to the Trans Sexual Health Outreach Worker, or visit http://bit.ly/clinictrans
