What is Transmuted?

  • facebook logo black circle

Transmuted is an independent trans organisation based in the North of England (currently directed by one absolute egg). 


Our primary goal is to strengthen alternative voices within trans spaces; to amplify the voices that are repeatedly silenced by wider society. To support & celebrate the trans community, help build links, mutual understanding and solidarity between ourselves and the wider community.

You can support the project by subscribing to quarterly journals, joining the Patreon, or checking out the shop for individual copies and more fab stuff! Check out socials & share the amazing trans work that is contributed to Transmuted <3


  • Creating spaces and platforms for trans people of all backgrounds to share their work.

  • Establishing safe spaces to learn and be ourselves.

  • To inspire and support trans arts and culture in all mediums.

  • Making trans culture more accessible to trans and non-trans people.

  • Giving the proverbial microphone to trans people, allowing them to represent themselves.

  • Using trans creativity and positivity to challenge transphobia.

Our Projects

One of our key projects is our journal, also called 'Transmuted', which we have been releasing quarterly - now annually.


The journal is one space we’ve created to platform trans artists and scholars, to elevate their voices and allow them to share their perspectives and experiences.


You can buy issues of our journal by clicking here.


We also host a number of events each year, both in-person and virtually.

These include workshops that allow for community education, knowledge-sharing and open discussion.

We also hold mini-festivals, which celebrate and showcase trans poetry, live music, drag, and other types of performance.

Our Goals for the Future

We hope to expand our reach, create educational & uplifting zines, establish a firm status as a international cultural journal, distribute a wide plethora of trans work, publish anthologies, and host more (and bigger) events!


We want to also be more involved with community education - including continuing our 'Free University' workshops, our zine project, and incessantly asking the question 'what is this going on?' - not forgetting the importance to provide education on how non-trans people might better support and understand the trans community. 


We're certainly ambitious, and want to amplify trans voices as loud as possible!

How to Support us

Despite being a very small organisation run by a very small but eager and committed team, our costs are substantial.


We would really appreciate any financial support we can get to ‘keep the lights on’ and to help us make this project bigger and reach as many people as possible. 


The easiest way to support us is to subscribe to our journal or purchase stickers, prints and other things from our online shop.

The best way to support us is through direct donations. Please consider a monthly donation on our Patreon. Just a couple of pounds a month can help make a big difference in helping us promote trans voices. You can also provide a one time donation on PayPal.


Submissions to the journal and site are not required to be about gender completely - we encourage work on other issues regarding normativity, oppression, alienation, capitalism (and so on, as all our struggles are linked, and it is Transmuted's purpose to share stories and educate). 


Transmuted's role as a trans-specific cultural project doesn't pertain to binary ideas of 'what (trans)gender is'. The intersectional role of gender normativity is in conjunction with ableism, migratisation, heteronormativity, colonialism, anglo-centrism, class, and so on.


We're dedicated to activism through cultural means: creating illustrations, graphics, articles, letters, etc. that symbolise and reflect upon intersectionality within trans communities. Our events are open to everyone willing to engage in safe space practices, and if these become paid gigs in the future, will focus on spreading wealth in areas that often go overlooked and unpaid. Further, the work that we do in the day-to-day running of Transmuted has always gone through a process of anti-normative analysis, to varying levels depending on the job! We attend seminars, workshops, community meetings, and any area of knowledge-sharing whenever possible. We're aware of problems within trans, non-cis, and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities face - and attempt to combat it at every level accessible to us at this point in time. Unfortunately, as you may already know, we're not a big project - so many avenues of encouraging change in our communities are dreams for the future.

Transmuted uses its platforms to speak about the intersectional ties from each to gender, and often only shares content specific to 'transness' within our communities/individualities. This is unfortunately, due to the large workloads of the project, sharing online content is not currently as accessible as we'd like it to be. For example, many of our posts have been deleted without permission, and often these posts attract a lot of attention (hate) that require copious amounts of emotional labour. (Of course, hate speech is not uncommon, but Transmuted has seen its fair share of personal threats. It is not safe for us to share every aspect of our activism due to our necessary online presence, nor do we see it as necessary unless required to note experiences. Transmuted is dedicated to activism in all areas, where it is safe and accessible to do so.) 

Please contact us at contactus(at)transmuted(dot)co(dot)uk if you have any issues or questions.

Dorian had the idea of creating an accessible space for the sharing of trans work (from all kinds of backgrounds) whilst studying an MA in Critical Theory in February 2022. They are putting all their time into Transmuted!
