Published on September 4, 2023 by Keira Evans

We received £2,736.17 from 97 financial contributors, and we spent £3,771.73. Our current balance is £16,192.67.

On 5th August, we had our monthly Cardiff meetup where we had a great turnout and got to meet so many new people! Thank you for joining us! And thank you to @notaphaseorg for helping fund and support our events, as always. Join us this month on Saturday, 2nd September from 1-4PM. Please join us for a free sober social for tans, intersex, and non-binary people - DM us for the location! Note that you can also apply for travel costs through our open collective or speak to us on the day for help.

On 11th August, we had our Big Splash event. We had a great time in the pool! These events provide a safe place for trans, nonbinary, and intersex people to swim or use a gym. Join us at our next swim event on 8th September!

On 12th August, we attended Glitter Pride! We had such an amazing time and loved getting to see so many of you! 

On 19th August, we had our monthly Newport meetup! Thank you so much to those who attended. We won’t be holding one in September due to Trans Pride Cardiff (more about this later)!
