Trans Day of Visibility is around the corner and this year Beyond Reflections are celebrating and fundraising with friends. On the 31st of March join public speaker and trainer Joanne Lockwood of See Change Happen as she takes you on a journey of exploration. A voyage of discovery of the impacts and benefits of being trans+ and visible.
What is the event?
Why are you excited Andi?
Because we are raising money for Beyond Reflections and raising awareness of the importance of visibility and our work saves lives. People come to Beyond Reflections to understand themselves better and make healthy decisions. Many of our members come to us in significant distress, through our support they find lasting mental wellbeing.
Beyond Reflections believes no trans+ person should have to struggle alone and isolated. This fundraiser brings us closer to our goal of providing our world class support across England and Wales.
Beyond Reflections’ incredible work
Since 2010 I have been part of so many transformations into authenticity. There is nothing more amazing than being part of someone’s growth and development. Our members consistently exceed their own goals, with over 92% very happy with the support we provide.
Who is taking part?
Friends who have been involved with Beyond Reflections since 2017 and some new faces.
In the evening I share the TDoV panel chaired by Joanne Lockwood with Finn Grice from LGBT Foundation, Ani Ritchie former lecturer and cochair of her university’s LGBTQ+ staff network and Eli Moore from Space Youth Project. Drop your questions in during the day and tune in at 5:30pm for live discussion.

What will Beyond Reflections do with the donations?
Every £60 donated to our fundraiser we can provide wellbeing support for one member for a year. £100 enables us to onboard a support group volunteer. As a powerful charity yet one with a small footprint every £1 donated has a direct impact on our service.
We value every donation and put it to use directly supporting our members.
Beyond Reflections friends are the best. Each of you is doing your part to make our world better. I look forward to seeing you at 10am on Thursday 31st of March on our Livestream.
