In 2010 Michelle Ross, with others, began meeting to discuss ideas for a trans health space. They then started meeting to discuss setting up a sexual health service specifically for the trans and non-binary communities. More organisations including London Friend, Antidote, and GALOP, joined and the ground-breaking idea developed into setting up a broader, holistic well-being clinic for trans and non-binary people and their family and friends. CliniQ opened in London UK on 15th February 2012.
