About We Exist

We Exist is a not-for-profit Trans Collective and mutual aid group organised by a team of artists and activists in London. The principle of mutual aid is at the core of what We Exist do: we are all responsible for caring for one another and changing our collective conditions, through solidarity not charity. 

Established in 2020 during Covid-19, the collective redistributes funds to provide financial support for the healthcare and wellbeing of trans, intersex & nonbinary people in the local community during the ongoing trans healthcare crisis in the UK. 

We Exist also take up space to bring our community together through pop-up spaces, residencies, exhibitions, workshops and the now annual celebration of trans* art and expression; Trans* Day of Joy. 

At the event We Exist will be raising money for their Trans Healthcare Fund, which you can contribute to below. We Exist is accepting donations via the platform Open Collective, a legal and financial toolbox for grassroots groups.
