Croydon Trans Group
Croydon Trans Group has been re-launched as TransPALS (Trans People Across London South).
See our new website at www.transpals.org.uk.
Croydon Trans Group, together with other local groups, has been involved in the following events every year:
- LGBT History Month (throughout February). See lgbt-croydon.org.uk/lgbthm.
- IDAHO, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (17 May). See lgbt-croydon.org.uk/idaho.
- The Trans Day of Remembrance (20 November). See www.tdor.org.uk.
Two Croydon-born pioneers
We remember Roberta Cowell (1918–2011) and Georgina Somerset (1923–2013). Both served in the war as men, both had their birth certificates changed and lived as women, but their stories are very different.
The law has finally been changed to allow equal marriage for all: a very important issue for some trans people. See the response we submitted to the Home Office Consultation in May 2012.
