Transgender Subgroup Coordinator – Lisa Kelly

Support

Transgender Workshop

Designed to help people along their transition. The workshop includes hints and tips for almost every situation, makeup tutorials and 1to 1 make up skills with Samantha Traill from BodyShop. We have Jazz Liddell looking after anyone who identifies as non-binary,
William Cox looking after transgender males and Lisa Kelly looking after transgender females. Do come along if you come under any of these categories, and also if you are questioning your gender, thinking about transitioning, or someone who dresses on a part-time basis, as there will be something of interest for you all. Leeds gender clinic may also send a representative along, but at present, I am waiting to hear confirmation. On top of all that, there is Tea/Coffee and lots of CAKE.

York Third Saturday

We run the only dedicated transgender, cross dresser, TV nightout. All people are welcome ! from 9pm at Thomas of York, Museum Street, York, YO1 7DT.


What the subgroup does

Lisa has been working hard to communicate by delivering talks with a number of organisations about trans issues and has regular subgroup meetings.

Lisa and the team have been campaigning hard for transgender and non-binary recognition in the City of York Council’s health and wellbeing strategies.

Lisa and the team were able to get trans issues into the Vale of York NHS Assessment.
