Chrysalis Transsexual Support Groups
Chrysalis is a volunteer peer led support group hosted by Lancashire Women's Centres, Blackburn and Blackpool. All genders are welcome, not just trans women.
We also welcome pre-transition people, as this is the most vulnerable and questioning time. Friends and supporters, again of any gender, are welcome.
We give transitioning advice: What to do, who to inform, the law and you. We also offer advice on voice coaching, electrolysis/laser/IPL hair removal, wigs, make-up, and much more, and offer limited counselling services. We offer free sessions and workshops on Trans Awareness to institutions, colleges, schools and businesses.
We are partners and give lectures and workshops for Lancashire LGBT, Age UK, and are advisors to Lancashire Constabulary. We are active in promoting trans issues to the wider public, through organisations such as Diversity Role Models.
