Newsletter January 2019

#metoo, newsletterNewsletter January 2019

For January 2019’s Newsletter we collaborated with a Stonewall Block Leader who is currently leading efforts to educate her community about sexual harassment. We define harassment, sexual harassment, and harassment in the work place. Also, Lawyers for LGBT & Allies Network (LLAN) also provided information on anti-harassment laws in Japan and the provisions these laws make.

Miss Transgender UK launches new foundation to support LGBT people in the community

A transgender woman from Scunthorpe has launched a new foundation called Bea Yourself to help support LGBT people in the community.

After searching through beauty pageants stating that all participants must be naturally born females, Bea Wood came across the Miss Transgender UK pageant.

The pageant, which took place last year, doesn’t score people according to beauty or size, but on votes from the crowd and the amount of charity money raised.

Bea, 29, raised more than £1,000 and was crowned Miss Transgender UK, as well as winning most inspirational outfit.
