Hi, my name is Helen and I am proud to welcome you to this new website. It’s been created to help transgender people on their journeys – and hopefully will also help friends and families to understand and come to terms with transgender issues.

The aim of our website is to give you all, the chance to contribute with your stories, news – and to share information to make our journeys as smooth as possible.

A brief low down about myself. My story is probably very familiar to most of you. I knew I should have been a girl from a very early age, in fact, about 5 years old.

But in the 1950’s and 1960’s it was simply something you couldn’t talk about as I thought I was unique with my feelings. I struggled with this for 50 odd years, hating my body, and having to do things which were expected of me as a ‘male’. I started my journey into transition at the tender age of 53 and had my surgery in 2011 …and that is another story!! I am now as complete as I can be and I’m very happy that at last I am the girl I always wanted to be.

I hope you enjoy our website – please share your views, concerns, news and thoughts with us.
