Eleanor has been heavily involved in providing social opportunities for trans people in the central-south of the country for more than a decade. She organises Southampton’s Totton Disco, is one of the organisers of Lyndhurst Transgender Friends and co-hosts Salisbury’s social group. She attends other social groups across the region as time permits.
Eleanor is also the southern Regional Organiser of the Beaumont Society, a role that she has held for nearly a decade. She has given speeches and trans awareness-raising talks to universities, charities, social work departments and other organisations. She is also a trustee of the BS and is the current editor of their quarterly magazine. She also co-authors most of the society’s submissions to parliamentary groups and government ministers.
In this talk, she intends to make the case for increased social contact for trans people and to cover what is on offer both locally and nationally. She feels strongly that attending such social events gives trans people the opportunity to volunteer as helpers, giving them a sense of ownership and responsibility.
Outside this voluntary work for trans people, Eleanor is a successful novelist and writer.
