Newsflash: Transphobic Conference

Some very interesting news. I have heard through the grapevine that there is a reasonable possibility that the conference may be cancelled! It looks like the pressure is working, so it is time to maintain pressure and be ready to consider our next course of action. I wouldn't like to speak too soon but if this is true this could well represent a significant victory for trans people over transphobia, and we should be ready to make a big deal about it if it does.

No decision has been taken yet, so we should maintain pressure, but the mere fact that this is a possibility should be taken as a battle won. Our actions are having an effect and this is very encouraging. Fantastic stuff everyone!


  1. If true this is wonderful news, Natacha. Very well done to all concerned. Even if it does go ahead there appears to be a head of steam building which is going to make RCPsych look very stupid.

  2. This is very good news for me to hear if it turns out to be true. I know we can't count our chickens but it is a positive piece of information indeed. We can keep on fighting and we will win :)

    And as a sidenote, you look beautiful in your picture :)
