Speaking about Sex, Gender and Equality

Engaging presentations and workshops on Transgender Awareness, LGBT History, Gender Equality and Unconscious Bias

Helping to Create a Fairer World…

My mission in life is to help create a fairer world in which every person’s gender, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation are accepted and respected. The content in this site and blog is designed to contribute toward furthering that mission.

I deliver keynote presentations, seminars and workshops,  especially Transgender Awareness Training, for hundreds or organisations and if you are a Meeting Planner, L@D or Equalities Professional you will find the information you need to assess whether my services would meet the needs of your organisation

If you have attended one of my workshops or presentation you will know that I don't usually give out handouts that are filed and become out of date or get lost.  Here you will find an online resource for participants and audience members as a refresher on the presentation content and to extended background information on issues of sex, gender and equality.

The key to ending gender based discrimination and harassment is education and I hope you find this site to be an entertaining and enjoyable educational experience. Please don't hesitate to contact me or comment on anything you see here.

What has amazed me is the number of LGBT stories in the news now with stories appearing more than one every day. Even Transgender stories are appearing two or three times a week.

FANTASTIC NEWS IN BOLIVIA: 'Transgender citizens of Bolivia receives new identity cards under a new gender law, a landmark move in the conservative country. .................. Pamela Geraldine Valenzuela is Bolivia's first transgender citizen to receive a new identity card. It's thanks to a new law that allows transgender people to register under their assumed gender. Valenzuela changed from a male to a female at the age of 15, and has been fighting for people like her to be officially recognised. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) TRANSGENDER ACTIVIST, PAMELA GERALDINE VALENZUELA, SAYING: "It took me more than 30 years for this change and in these 30 years I have suffered so much discrimination, so much psychological, verbal and even physical violence. I believe that everything that has happened has come to fruition." Part of the criteria is that the person has to present psychological and medical documents to vouch for their new identity. After Valenzuela, many other transgender Bolivians followed suit.'
