“a:gender is an inclusive support network for staff in Government Departments and Agencies. It covers all aspects of gender reassignment, gender identity, gender expression and intersex. Years ago I attended an a:gender event. I was grateful to the speakers, trans men and trans women, for speaking so candidly about their experiences. They helped me on my journey to live authentically. At the event I was given a badge on which a meerkat stands tall, on the look-out. The image is a sign that the badge wearer will look out for others and call out transphobia.”
