We are outsiders.

We are outsiders.

We are outsiders,

On the periphery,

Watching everyone else,

Pretending we’re like them,

But knowing we’re not.

The best we can hope for is to find a place where we don’t have to pretend.

Is home a place to run to, or a place we run from?

Only to hide out in places we’re more accepted, unconditionally.

Places that feel more like home to us,

because we can finally be who we are.

Crossdressing – Keeping it in the family.

Does the family know? Do you share it? There’s a lot of questions about crossdressing, and gender fluid life that are likely to emerge. How does one handle that? Enjoy this discussion with Jules and Lenni, as they explore the subject.

Let’s not get hung up on labels.

I see a lot of comments on forums and blogs about the idea of labels. It seems to be a common pass time to try to decide if transgender people are the same as transvestite people – and some terms are now archaic, and others have slipped into alternative use. One way or another I find it a complete mine field.

I am certainly not going to step into those debates. I do understand that there are many different types of people who choose to wear women’s clothes. Some are on their way to transition, others are choosing to put something on as they really find a sexual high out of it. Others still simply want to allow their femininity to blossom. Personally I am enjoying navigating the middle ground between genders that allows me to enjoy something of the best of all worlds. I think we cater to all of those possibilities here on FionaDobson.com.

I find the term ‘gender fluid’ fairly generic. The movement freely and easily between genders does describe what many of my members do, if not who they are. And there I think lies the safe ground. After all, do we really need these labels? Particularly here, if we really think of the phrase ‘Accept yourself as you are, create yourself as you desire’ you’ll see we are not really interested in what others think or how they choose to judge us.

Let’s show our support for Dr. Helen Webberley

Dr. Helen Webberley is one of very few people who have dared to stand up to an establishment that has neglected transgender patients and left them with no support for many years. For so many people, myself included, GenderGP saved my life from a time where my local Health Board wanted to leave me on an endless waiting list. GenderGP provided a wonderful and supportive service and gave me access to treatment that I needed.

On December 3rd 2018 Dr Helen Webberley was found guilty of operating an unregistered clinic for transgender patients. She was fined £12,000.

Dr. Webberley has done nothing wrong other than dare to stand against a system that wasn’t doing enough for its vulnerable patients.

Now is the time for the trans community and trans allies to come together and let Dr. Webberley know how much we support and appreciate the work that she has done for transgender patients.

Look at what the patients have to say about the work of GenderGP; how can we stand back and see this wonderful work threatened! Click Here to Read Words of Patient Support .

We are not seeking to raise funds to cover any legal fees. Simply we are raising money specifically to say “thank you” to Dr Helen Webberley for all the life-saving support she has given the transgender community, and for the personal sacrifices she has made.
