frienTS Summer Trip
Our trans*-Summer Trip with about 60 attendees from all over Germany, Switzerland and Austria usually happens around Whitsun and lasts four nights.
What makes this event so special is the feeling of fitting in with a group and not being the odd one out for being trans*. We always come back feeling empowered and with lots of new contacts in our phones.
While being trans* isn’t something super important during this trip, you do not have to hide it. This creates a safe space to be yourself and gives many the possibility to feel free. This is especially important for those who enjoy swimming, which can be an activity you do not participate in freely because of being trans*.
There also are in-depth trans*-Talks happening during our time at the house, where you get the opportunity to ask any questions regarding being trans* or about transitioning.
Summer Trip 2023
Do you want to get outside with over 50 other trans* people? From May 26th to May 30th of 2023 we'll spend four awesome days at the Jugendzeltdorf Rannasee (a camping site). However we will not be sleeping outdoors but use the big space for several activities. Of course, this trip will be full of fun activities and lots of opportunities to talk and get to know fellow trans people.
So sign up quickly here! :)
We'll be staying at Tumpenberg 15, 94110 Wegscheid. You can drive there by car or by train (train station "Passau Bf"). From the train station there will be a shuttle bus to the camp at 6:00 pm.
Last but not least, some information about us: We're the frienTS group, a trans group that provides fun activities and a safe space for trans youth from ages 14 to 27. We're part of the diversity München e.V., a voluntary organization for queer youth from 14 to 27. The group follows the peer-to-peer principle, which means that all the volunteers leading the group are the same age as the participants and also trans. Our main focus is to provide a safe space where trans people can have carefree leisure time. Our regular meet ups are usually limited to one day. That is why we very much look forward to our field trip each year. It provides our participants with more time to get to know each other, forget about the hetero cis world for a while and spend quality time with each other.
If the participation fee is not manageable for you, do not hesitate to contact us here. We'll find a solution.
We're looking forward to having you!
your frienTS team
