Staying active is important for everyone, but concerns around safety and dysphoria can make it difficult for many of our members to enjoy activities, especially something like swimming. To help with that, we’re looking to run a swim event for our Trans*, Non-Binary, Intersex, & GNC members in the near future, allowing people to swim in privacy and safety.
For the event, we would book the entire pool, so it would only be our members participating in the event who would be there. We’re looking at using Jubilee Sports Centre, which has gender-neutral changing facilities including individual private cubicles. The pool isn’t visible from outside of the sports centre, but is visible from the reception area.
We’re looking at getting donations of gender-affirming swimware for participating members, but this isn’t guaranteed yet. More details will be available closer to the time.
To help us make this the best event we can for you, we’ve put together a survey where you can let us know your thoughts on the event, the price you’d be willing to pay, and any concerns you’d like us to address.
The survey will also be used to talk to SUSU about the event from a financial standpoint, but no identifying information will be used with any of the responses.
