Newsletter November 2018 Adoption Awareness
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.
