The group is run by non-binary people for non-binary people. Family and partners are welcome. The group welcomes folk in drab (birth gender mode) or dressed (preferred gender mode). No matter how you present, you will always be addressed by your preferred name.

Gender Affirmation Fund
We recognise that transgender, non-binary and gender-neutral individuals face additional mental health pressures that are directly related to their gender identity.

As part of our commitment to supporting students with their
mental health, the University of Kent has created the Gender Affirmation Fund.
This fund is available to students who identify as transgender, non-binary or
gender neutral and can be used to help support students with the costs of
gender affirming items such as binders, clothing, packers, makeup, hair
extensions, pouches, Stand To Pee devices, gendered religious headwear or
clothing and minor cosmetic procedures such as ear piercing or for managing
