The Gay and Lesbian Vaishnava Association is an international organization dedicated to the teachings of Lord Caitanya, the importance of all-inclusiveness within His mission, and the Vedic concept of a natural third gender. Its purpose is to educate Vaishnavas, Hindus and the public in general about the “third sex” as described in Vedic literatures. This knowledge will help to correct many of the common misconceptions that people hold today concerning third-gender people (gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, the intersexed, etc.). In addition to this, GALVA wishes to provide a friendly and positive-oriented place where third-gender devotees and guests can associate together and utilize their time to learn more about Krsna consciousness and advance in spiritual life.

The intention behind TransBristol is to create a safe space where trans identified people in the Bristol area can share ideas, provide support and plan things. This WordPress site will act (for the moment, at least) as a platform for ordering and accessing information . There is a Facebook group where you can input ideas and discuss stuff. There is also an e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to develop in a non-hierarchical, co-operative and consensual decision-making sort of way. If you want to get involved, that would be great. If you want to stand at the side, that’s also fine. This site is a work in progress. Just at the moment, it’s just me, Dru, putting information in and hoping for the best. If there’s something you think should be on this site, let me know! Further admins will probably get involved later. The Facebook group is the place for free-for-alls. Play nicely! Update: been adding pages of info and links. They reflect my own perspective, and so are weighted in a slightly MtF way. Hopefully this will change as more people get involved. We want as many perspectives as possible. Binary, non-binary, genderqueer, whatever. Anything under the trans umbrella should belong here.
