Follow this page for announcements on online interactive sessions on a variety of issues around gender and sexuality.
Among other activities, we will attempt to bring you sessions where you (as health and legal aid service users) can interact with queer-friendly service providers and pose your questions and doubts.
To begin with the sessions will be in the nature of public events; over time we will try to organize also one-on-one chat sessions with service providers.
