    About the session: Are you considering top surgery, or just want to know more about what the experience is like? Our guest speaker Luka will talk to your about their lived experience of top surgery, and share their tips about what to expect, and what you can do to look after yourself before and after.

    Covid safety: So we can best look after our community, we highly recommend all event/service attendees wear masks. We have N95's and KF94's available. We have two air purifiers in the space, one of which (the Coway AirMega) is able to capture particles as small as Covid and can filter the air in our space twice per hour.
