Dear Belinda

We are a team from De Montfort University and have been funded by Macmillan Cancer Support to conduct a small study in promoting good outcomes in cancer care for LGBT people with cancer. We now have NHS ethical and R&D approval to conduct the study in 5 hospital settings, but we would also like to include trans people with cancer in the study through community settings also. We feel it is a groundbreaking piece of research because most previous health research has been conducted in transitioning services and has overlooked other aspects of health and healthcare.

Please share details of the study among your members either in your newsletter and/or website


Kind regards

Julie Fish

Good afternoon Belinda,

I contacted you about a month ago regarding adding our resource www.addictioncenter.com to your wonderful list of useful sites. I just wanted to check in with you to see if you received my message. Again, we would love to be included! We are making it our mission to provide this tool to as many people as possible.

Thank you for all that you do,

Hi there Belinda,

Hope you’re keeping well.

I’m getting in touch from All About Trans, a project working to improve trans representation in the media. We’re speaking with trans organisations across the country, letting them know about new research that we’re collaborating on with an MA student.

It looks at how trans people are represented in the media – the impact this has on people’s wellbeing, if it’s improving or getting worse.

Would you be interested in sharing this survey with your network please? We’d love to have as many voices as possible in the research and would be really grateful for any support you may be able to give!

Here is a link to the survey:


I’ve also written a little blurb below, if you’d like to share in a newsletter or on Facebook:

All About Trans is working with MA student Qiuling Liu, who has created a survey on trans people’s representation in the media. Alongside Jennie Kermode, the author of the original 2010 work, All About Trans Advisor Sarah Lennox and strategic planner and qualitative researcher Jo Shaw, they have been working with Qiuling to develop a survey that can allow trans people to share how they feel about media representation in the UK.

She’s asking what has changed in seven years? How are things better? What impact does the media have on trans people’s lives and wellbeing? How can trans advocacy organisations make a difference? This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about the media’s influence and impact on trans and non-binary lives – but they need your help.

Will you take the survey, please? It’s linked here too: https://kclbs.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3WMbgv6RJwjTsgd

We’re asking trans* and gender questioning adults – 18 years plus – to take the survey. We’d also appreciate any sharing of the survey – help us spread the word! Open only until Monday 31st July, the anonymous survey takes a little time to complete, but is an excellent opportunity to express how the media might affect you or your family. Findings will be shared in September. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Qiuling (qiuling.liu@kcl.ac.uk) if you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey.

*‘Trans’ is used here as an umbrella term for the broad spectrum of people who feel they are gender variant in some way, including but not limited to transsexual, transgender, non-binary and gender queer people.

Here’s a tweet, in case you have Twitter:

“Want to have your say on #trans representation in the #media? Check out & take this short survey: https://kclbs.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3WMbgv6RJwjTsgd

Please do get in touch with any questions!

Many thanks and all the best,

Dear Belinda

My name is Milena Deparis. I am based in Brighton and have lived in Asia for a good part of my youth, specifically in Thailand.

Dr. Pansritum, Head Surgeon of Kamol Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand specializes in sex-reassignment surgery and is coming to Brighton on the 21st and 22nd of July to organise a conference free of charge.

Kamol Hospital has recently been involved offering their services and financial support to the Trans community with the government and NHS of Canada and been involved with the Trans community in Spain.

Kamol Hospital is holding a free conference on the 21st and 22nd of July in Brighton in celebration of Trans Pride and the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality.

At the conference, Kamol Hospital will present their medical results of SRS, general questions about SRS (MTF and FTM) as well as Facial Feminization Surgery and Corrective Surgery.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet with Dr. Pansritum, who not only has twenty years experience in this speciality, but as an Asian surgeon can bring alternative views.

Come all, it’s free!

You can book your place online at: http://www.kamolhospital.com/events/uk/

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions.
