The End Of An Era

In November 2016 I attended one of the best weekends of the year at Rotherham in Yorkshire. It’s what I call a ‘tranny weekend’ but in fact it was the Beaumont Society’s Annual General Meeting organised by Janett Scott who has been doing this for 25 years. In addition to being the 25th anniversary of this event this year, it was also the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Beaumont Society itself. However, despite it being an absolutely brilliant weekend, it was tinged with sadness this time, because this was to be the final event of this type, as Janett was stepping down from doing any more.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been to most of these events; from the very first one when I was taking my first tentative steps in the world of transgender, up to the current one, when I have been happily living as Jenny for 10 years.

The event is one of many that has helped me - and I have no doubt - many others, to find our way in the Transworld, through being able to dress and socialise with other Trans-people, gain a better understanding of our own situation, experiment with makeup and clothing (not always appropriate for our age), and gain confidence in the ‘real world’. In this, I think the nearby Meadowhall shopping Mall has to be credited for coping with an influx of Trans-people for that one weekend a year for the last 25 years, and I’ve suspected on more than one occasion that the local newspaper must have been broadcasting a ‘Tranny alert’ for that weekend - although in fact there have been no real problems with anyone visiting there, despite to my knowledge several Trans getting ‘read’.

About Transliving Magazine

Hi and welcome to issue 55 of Transliving International. In this issue, we feature Amanda Richards from America on the front cover. Amanda shares with us her photos and tells us all about her journey as a t-girl and her makeover-service business. This issue also includes a report with photos from our Laguna Bournemouth Weekend from last December which again was another enjoyable and successful weekend. We also feature Defy Models, which is a new modelling agency catering for the transgender community only, and is the first of its kind in the UK. I have spoken with the founder, Mark, at great length on several occasions and he has lots planned for the future. Transliving are also planning to get involved with some of it, but for now, if you fancy yourself as a model but have always allowed your trans status to put you off, or indeed have been refused work because of it, then please do check the feature out on Defy Models in this issue and make contact with them. One feature included this time is Sexual Health, and it is something that we should all be geared up on and pay extra attention to, particularly if you are not in a monogamous long term relationship. I know that the discussion of sex is somewhat still a taboo subject within our community and many prefer not to discuss it, but my motto is; ‘if you're doing it then enjoy doing it but at least know the facts about Sexual Health and that you're safe!’ PLUS all our usual sections on where to go out in our Scene Guide, TV/TS Contacts, Events, readers' personal real-life stories & experiences, fabulous photo-spreads, advice on fashion, makeup & image styling, Information, Support and so much more!.... What more do you need? With so much going on it’s no surprise that Transliving is THE go to magazine for the Cross-Dressing and Transgender community and their friends and lovers all over the world!
