Event Information

Local Writer and Campaigner Jane Fae will Discuss her Book, Transition Denied, Comforting the Crisis in Trans Healthcare

Monday 09 July 2018
7:30 pm

Local writer and campaigner Jane Fae was shocked and angered by the story of Synestra DeCourcy, a local transgender woman who died in 2015 following years of rejection by the NHS.

The result is Transition Denied, an honest, open telling of Synestra’s story.  This uncompromising book explores how Syn was repeatedly failed by society and exposes the prejudices faced by other trans people today.

 

She will be joined by:

Amanda DeCourcy, Syn’s mother and Director of Synestra’s CIC, a charity established in Syn’s memory and in support of young trans people, social justice
and institutional prejudice researcher at Goldsmiths University and author of How to Transform Your School into an LGBT+ Friendly Place

Anna Carlile, social justice and institutional prejudice researcher at Goldsmiths University and author of How to Transform Your School into an LGBT+ Friendly Place

Booking not required, but you may RSVP on 01462 684631
