About Transkaters

Transkaters is London’s first trans+ skateboard, roller-skate, roller-blade and wheelchair collective, and they run a monthly night at BAYSIXTY6, on every second Friday of the month. LGBTQIA+ skaters of all abilities are welcome.

Founder Milo created Transkaters because skateboarding brings him so much joy, but skate parks are often immensely cis male dominated spaces and don’t feel safe for LGBTQIA+ folks. He wanted to meet some trans folk who wanted to get back into skating, and put a call out on Instagram. He has been bowled over by the beautiful, blossoming community they have today, and to see the positive and restorative impact it’s had on people’s lives already.

In a world that often struggles to fully embrace diversity and inclusion, ‘Beyond the Binary – The Spectrum Of Trans Joy’ is a project dedicated to fostering social cohesion and visibility for the trans and intersex community. This fresh initiative from the award-winning queer photographer Chris Jepson seeks to empower and celebrate the trans+ community by showcasing authentic joy through a captivating series of individual and group portraits.
