Open Barbers is a queer and trans* friendly haircutting service in North London offering wicked haircuts and an inclusive atmosphere. Here is their manifesto:
“Open Barbers is a hairdressing service for all genders and sexualities led by Greygory, Klara, Felix and Clancey.
Who we are and what we do:
We offer a personalised and warm haircutting experience with a queer and trans friendly attitude. We seek to promote the diversity of identities in society and celebrate people’s appearance in the way they wish to be seen.
Open Barbers started in March 2011, building on hairdressing skills and experience developed by Greygory and Klara over the last decade. Open Barbers has already participated in several events including Latitude Festival, Schmoozing For Art with artist Brian Lobel and the Jewish Community Centre, Bar Wotever, Queer Fayre and House of Stars. The experience has been extremely well received creating a thriving mailing list and online interaction from Open Barbers clients. An interview with Open Barbers features in Dapper Q online magazine celebrating our new initiative, bringing international acclaim to our diverse approach.
If you are interested in coming along or making an appointment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org”

Following the amazing success of the recent consultations by NHS England, the following twitter clubs will be taking place:
Tuesday 17 December 1 pm- Minorities within the trans* community (for example intersex, people with disabilities, people from ethnic minorities etc)
Thursday 19 December 8 pm- Children and young trans* people
Wednesday 8 January 1 o clock- Older trans* people
Tuesday 14 January 6 o clock- wrap-up session: any issues not covered so far.
These targeted sessions aim to address specific issues for trans* people in terms of their experience of and barriers to services, whether it be GICs or general health services. Having discussed the sessions with the NHS England team, I feel really positive about the data from these sessions actually being recorded and put to good use. So, please get involved, have your say
Following the success of Trans Health Matters in March 2013, the second event aims to provide a trans* voice into the health debate; providing practical solutions for trans* engagement and for strategic inclusion in the health & social care sectors.
The 2014 event is supported by cliniQ, the innovative trans* health and well being NHS service in central London; it’s partner providers and the National LGB & T Partnership. It will look at specific health needs and issues of trans* inclusion in the planning and delivery of health, public health and social care services.
In the spirit of the event, Trans Health Matters wants to include trans* people at every stage of its development. We’d love to hear what trans* people want from the day:
What matters to you with regards to trans* health and well-being?
What can the program include that would make it appealing to you? (i.e. what sort of activities or discussions are relevant for you)
How can we make the event as inclusive, rewarding and accessible as possible?
To have your say, join us on twitter, 4pm this Sunday (December 8th) on the hashtag #transhealthmatters
