Trans United Europe

Trans BPOC European Network

Who we are

Trans United Europe/ Trans European BPOC network has been founded to unite the networks of European operating Trans BPOC NGOs and individual BPOC trans activists living and working in Europe.  We started in 2013 in the Netherlands with Trans United Nederland from which we formatted in Brussels the umbrella BPOC network Trans United Europe. Trans United Nederland is the Dutch department operating from the Red Light District in the heart of Amsterdam. We amplify European and global BPOC media content via social media, inform BPOC trans communities on trans sex work, gender-specific healthcare including HIV prevention programs for transmen and non-binary people. We are a BPOC sex worker and BPOC trans people living with HIV led organization.

Trans United Nederland

As an organization, we strive for the empowerment of the BPOC trans community at a local, national, and international level. Below you can check our local projects in our Dutch sister branch.
