The city of Bristol, England, is a unitary authority, represented by four MPs representing seats wholly within the city boundaries. As well as these, Filton and Bradley Stoke covers the northern urban fringe in South Gloucestershire and the north eastern urban fringe is in the Kingswood constituency. The overall trend of both local and national representation became left of centre, favouring the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats during the latter 20th century, but there was a shift to the right in the 2010 general election (although this was not reflected in the local elections). The city has a tradition of local activism, with environmental issues and sustainable transport being prominent issues in the city. The most recent City council elections were in May 2011. The next are expected in May 2013. For information and up to date council meeting webcasts visit the Council and Democracy pages, at http://www.bristol.gov.uk/nav/council-and-democracy
The Bristol Crossroads group has been supporting the transgender community in and around Bristol, under various names, for over 25 years. The meetings are informal and provide the opportunity for all transgendered people (Transvestites, Crossdressers, Transexuals, both male-to-female and female-to-male) and their partners and family to meet and dress in a safe and supportive environment. There are changing facilities available for those who need them.
Not all transgendered people can dress at home or have the confidence to join the more public girls and boys at other venues. At a Crossroads meeting you can dress and chat with other people like yourself, learn new skills (e.g. makeup), find out about places that provide the special items that we need to make us in to the girl or boy we want to be (e.g. breastforms, clothes etc) and get information about other groups and activities that you may like to take part in.
If you are taking your first tentative steps out of the closet or have only been able to dress occasionally at home but you want to meet and chat with others just like you, or your family or partner would like to chat with others in their situation, contact us and come along to a meeting. It could be the start of a whole new world.
