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one of my workshops or presentation you will know that I don't usually give out handouts that are filed and become out of date or get lost.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.

I just wish Katie Hopkins would spend even a few minutes educating herself about issues before mouthing off. We spend billions every year on life saving treatments for people who are only sick because they self harm - they each too much junk food, drink too much alcohol, take too many drugs, (legal and illegal) and refuse to exercise.

I am not suggesting that we should stop treating the millions of people who self harm because we are a compassionate and caring society and even if people have self inflicted illnesses, But perhaps we should be putting more focus on preventative treatments so that fewer people have life threatening illnesses which is what happens in the treatment of trans people

Trans people are born with a condition called gender dysphoria - this isn't a choice, it's not a path anyone would choose believe me. Our problem is that we are subjected to so much bullying, harassment and victimisation by the likes of Katie Hopkins and the Trolls who follow her that many trans people end up with mental health problems resulting in attempted suicide or self harming. Treating Transpeople is preventative treatment that saves the NHS millions every year for a fraction of the cost. ... See MoreSee Less

"Do we need to pander to the trans community? I say no." Katie Hopkins says that the NHS should focus on life saving treatment.
