Supporting Transgender People in your Life - Sam's story

Gloriously Unready

28-06-2023 • 40 mins

Sam is bisexual and a non-binary trans person who was a significant part of the LGBTQ+ community in their hometown of Nottingham for many years. Sam is an equality, diversity and inclusion trainer with specialisms in minority stress, trauma, and gender.

In this episode Sam shares their journey of understanding and recognising their gender and how it isn't always a straightforward journey.

They also talk about the importance of supporting the trans and non binary people in your life and how you can do that.

To access counselling in the UK with a therapist who is trained in working with LGBTQ+ people and their families, the following organisations have directories of therapists:

Gendered Intelligence

https://genderedintelligence.co.uk/professionals/therapists-and-counsellors/directory.html

Pink Therapy

https://pinktherapy.com/find-a-therapist/

Look for therapists who state that they are inclusive, an LGBTQ+ ally, and who share their own pronouns.

Has a young person in your life just come out as transgender or non-binary? Do you feel confused and have a lot of questions?

Perhaps you’re feeling frightened for them? Or maybe you’re feeling upset?
