THE WORK

Through open speaking and discussion, I hope to encourage people to think differently about people who are Transgender and people with disabilities. Asking questions about subjects that they would never normally feel comfortable about asking, for example, disability and sex. We know that most people can feel uncomfortable discussing sex at the best of times,  however when bringing disability into the conversation and I can guarantee some red faces! 

 

I have given talks to people training to be care assistants and students completing nursing degrees to encourage them to understand their clients, beyond just their physical needs. In a society where people feel more comfortable about being true to their gender identity, there is more need for those in a caring role to understand these different identity. Whether this is in hospitals, doctor’s surgeries, care homes or in a domiciliary setting.

 

I like to work with small groups on a  interactive basis and also give lecture style training to large groups. I try to alter my training to suit the audience. For example with care assistants or nurses, I may enter into detail about gender reassignment surgeries, recovery processes and how these could be more challenging with certain physical disabilities.

 

With a group of young people, I may concentrate on the social aspects such as explaining transphobia, or how people with physical disabilities can sometimes feel patronised by how they are treated by others
