Membership

Become A TENI Member

Community engagement is an essential part of our identity. By becoming a TENI member, you are helping us to build a vibrant and sustainable trans community in Ireland. To vote or run in the 2018 Board elections you must be a current member of TENI. 

TENI membership is currently closed, but will reopen again soon!

Have Your Say!

TENI membership not only supports us in the important work we do, it also gives you a voice at our General Assembly. Members can run for and vote in Board elections. We keep members regularly updated on our work, our events and volunteer opportunities.

The Gender Recognition Act does not allow non-binary people or under-16s to be legally recognised. Intersex people and 18 and 17-year-olds are also not meaningfully included. Your membership will help us fight for legal recognition for everyone in our diverse community.

The Irish healthcare system can be frustrating to navigate as a trans person. Waiting lists for gender affirming healthcare are far too long. TENI works with the HSE to make their services trans inclusive. Thanks in large part to TENI's work and advocacy, this year the HSE committed to hiring nine new personnel to work in this area. Your membership will support us in our campaign for better healthcare for trans people.

TENI supports more and more young people in schools. Our members will help us to ensure that schools across Ireland are trans inclusive and that young trans people have the best possible educational outcomes.

We know that one in four trans people in Ireland are unemployed and actively seeking work. By becoming a TENI member you assist us in making workplaces and recruitment practices more trans friendly.

Peer support is crucial for trans people and their families. Our members ensure that these vital spaces are facilitated across the country.
