Gender Matters provide not only much needed support across the whole trans community, but also training and consultancy for employers, the public sector, service providers and commissioners. They also offer educational packs for schools and advice on equality and employment law.

The launch of ‘Mapping my journey’ at the prestigious MAC building in Birmingham brought together local public and third sector organisations and members of the trans community to raise awareness of GM’s work and celebrate their success. It was very well attended and a great success.

Terry and Bernard Reed OBE from GIRES (Gender Identity Research and Education Society) both attended and Terry presented an educational, informative presentation of her experiences both as a JP, consultant to the NHS and Government but also a heart rending personal reflection of her experiences with her own family.

Elaine Stoddart, Director of Education for Sterex Electrolysis said, “the day was inspiring and thought provoking. Any electrologist, laser and IPL practitioner needs to answer the call to arms and help trans people on their journey so that they can be who they are and not fear their own reflection. Being trans is not a mental illness nor a life style choice and they need the skills that Electrologists and other experts in the field of hair removal can offer. Sterex offers help and support in training those who wish to help but are apprehensive due to lack of knowledge or confidence”.
