About We Exist: We Exist is a trans* led organisation that wants to provide more spaces for trans* people to platform their work, their ideas and discuss issues affecting the community. This exists through taking up space in the city of London through pop up cafes, art spaces, exhibitions and more. The ultimate aim of all the work we do will be to provide directly available funds for trans* people who need it to pay for healthcare needs in the face of ongoing failings from the current government and health service.
