We are delighted to announce the launch of Trans Safety Network’s new and improved website and brand identity, in partnership with Studio Squid. Visit the new site at https://transsafety.network
After over a year’s work, we have finally launched a beta version of our new site… Check it out at https://gfsc.studio/ — you can see all of our lovely faces, explore a wide range of projects, learn about how you can support our work directly, and much more.
The paint is still (metaphorically) a bit wet — we know there are a few issues which need ironing out — if you spot any terribly broken things or howling errors, please do slide into our DMs or @ us on Discord.
I am sure many other small studios will be familiar with what is often the hardest project of all — their own website! Self-promotion can often end up falling between the cracks during busy weeks and months…
For far too long, the GFSC website has been out of date, with few examples of our work, and not enough explanation of who we are and what we do. No longer!
Reminder we are #hiring a content designer and a developer! We’re a small predominantly #trans, #disabled, and #neurodiverse studio trying to make a fairer society using activism, #technology, and research.
We work a #4dayweek, and are fully remote in the UK.

Register for our meetup in PHL (optional):
We're also thrilled to be on The White Pube's last podcast talking about our plans for 2023.
Synopsis: "Is Instagram a good place to share art? It's like we are all standing in the same town square screaming for attention but we can't even clearly hear the screams because we are screaming too. In this episode, we discuss the limits of centralised social media for artists and we also look at the alternatives"
✨ANNOUNCING: UnTechCon ✨ — a one-day unconference about creating community digital autonomy, challenging big tech, and creating a future worth living in. It's on 10th December on the GFSC discord.
An unconference is a conference where there's no preset agenda or speaker list, under a loose overall theme. All attendees are encouraged to give talks, lead discussions, run workshops, etc. Or just come and listen if you'd prefer!

We're still getting used to our little Mastoson server but are looking forward to sharing more of our projects with you and having a more direct line between what our staff are working on and the general public. This profile will hopefully slowly start to replace our Twitter profile here as we go: https://twitter.com/gfscstudio
Look forward to meeting you all!
