Yesterday was National Coming Out day. Coming out makes you vulnerable. Who should I tell? How will I say it? what happens if they don’t accept me? via @ChrysalisGIM

Personal Pronouns - Why its important
The 18/Oct was International Pronouns day - See this interesting article by the CEO of @ChrysalisGIM

Love this review by @fionasturges of Shon Faye's 'The Transgender Issue'. She says it right with "Her book is a cry for compassion for an embattled community and a plea to be treated with dignity and fairness. It is, surely, the very least anyone can do."

I really enjoyed coming along to the group this morning.

Thank you so much for the link. I’m sorry I didn’t say anything I was a bit nervous of joining in but loved just listening to the conversation. It was my first time being seen dressed by anyone and has done my confidence the world of good. So very happy

I have had a tough few months and through accepting help with Barny I have been able to work through a lot of the issues I have had through this.

Barny is a lovely genuine counsellor who goes the extra mile from rescheduling appointments to sticking around on calls a bit longer when I’m an emotional mess. I want to thank Barny from the bottom of my heart and I’m grateful for his help and is a outstanding counsellor to support us all.

The one to one support means a lot to me.

It is a major highlight of my week and allows me to talk to someone. I particularly enjoy the unbiased and separated talk from my daily life without feeling like I am being a burden on anyone. It is lovely to hear from [my one to one support person] and helps me a lot in recentering myself every week and helps get over my cabin fever. 

… I absolutely adore everything Chrysalis does for the local trans community
