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.

The third and final NHS twitter club (for now) will be taking place on Tuesday 26th, again using the hashtag: #NHSGenderID
The first two sessions have been super engaging and I hope, for the NHS, quite illuminating. All the opinions, complaints and suggestions have been fantastic and useful. A lot of venting has understandably occurred, and I think in a lot of ways the process has felt quite cathartic. Hopefully this is the beginning of a move towards partnership working with the NHS, and towards tangible improvements in services.
I think the third and final session for non-binary identified people is maybe the most important session yet. Due to justifiable anxiety around honestly presenting ones gender (gender fluidity or lack of gender) at GICs, its likely that “non-binary” goes under the radar within NHS services. I certainly know of a lot of anecdotal information from Genderqueer friends who felt the need to “butch up” or “femme up” for GIC appointments. I’m sure this isn’t news for most of us!
This is a huge opportunity for genderqueer and non-binary people to engage with the NHS and importantly, show they are not as invisible or so few in number as service providers may believe.
Happy tweeting! #NHSGenderID
