  • Why we’re using 2FA on our new website

    What is 2FA, and why do we use it? In short, there is an increasing online threat. Hackers are getting more sophisticated in their methods of cybercrime. We want to keep you safe on our website.

  • My Daughter, an Unexpected Gift

    I remember the day as if it was yesterday. It was the 16th of March 2015, my husband was at snooker when my lovely 22-year-old son came into the room and said he had something to tell me. Wringing his hands, turmoil on his face, talking under his breath and clearly upset, he told me ‘I want to be a woman, I’m a woman inside and I have to do something to change the rest of my life’.

  • Michael Dillon – the first trans man to undergo phalloplasty

    Michael Dillon was assigned female at birth and was named Laura by her parents, but had always felt uncomfortable in women’s clothes. He knew that he was not a woman and preferred to wear clothes designed for men. At university – as Laura, of course - she excelled at rowing and was the president of the Oxford University Women’s Boat Club. While a student – long before stories of gender reassignment surgeries appeared in the media - she wondered about the possibilities of hormone therapy, and researched what was known about it at the time.

  • Daniel's Story: I am not a girl

    I am extremely proud and excited to tell my story and to, hopefully, encourage other female-to-males to come forward and to get the support that they may so desperately need, but are too afraid to ask for.
    So it is with some trepidation, that I begin to write.

  • Embracing the enigmatic truth behind my child’s happiness

    Writing ‘Embracing the enigmatic truth behind my child’s happiness,’ has been an incredibly personal journey, as it is about my thoughts and feelings about my transgender son James and our relationship. It has been like trying to unravel a misshapen ball of knotted string. One of those annoying misshapen balls of string, that takes up a lot of room in a drawer that keeps getting things caught in it and should be thrown away, but it never does, because it will just take a ‘few minutes’ to sort out. But we all know that unravelling a tangled ball of string is going to require patience, determination and a lot of thinking through. As one bit of string is unravelled another tangled mess appears, with one knot leading to three or four other knots that seem to spring from nowhere. Undoing them seems impossible, but as with all puzzles there is always a solution.

What our members say

  • The support and advice were invaluable in my journey; they helped me exit my front door in daylight. It was liberating and exhilarating, but it also felt so natural. Since then, I have come out to friends and work colleagues. All this is largely due to the help and support from the Beaumont Society.

  • Joining the Beaumont Society a year ago is the best thing I've ever done to help my state of mind. Since then, I have made so many truly good friends and had so much fun on every outing with the girls. It has really enriched my life and made me a much better person, both outwardly and inwardly.

  • Being trans is not without its challenges, and no one should have to go through them alone. Since joining the Beaumont Society, I have met some wonderful, supportive people and grown in confidence through my friendship with them.

  • Being on the trans spectrum can be a very lonely place with a sense of isolation that can be overwhelming. For me, being a member of the Beaumont Society has given me a place where I can be my true inner self, a place where I am accepted for who I am.
