As part of data collecting and creating trans visibility, Gender DynamiX welcomes collaborations and want to work with researchers and students. One of the most important ways of getting stories and experiences told is through interviews and articles made available to other people. This also helps trans people who still need the courage to “come out” to their families, to friends and spouses and often to give themselves the opportunity to identify with the real life experiences of those who are brave enough to share theirs.

Often these stories and experiences also help in activism, lobbying and ground- breaking changes. Not every person is cut out for activism, but by means of sharing stories, those who are taking the issues forward are geared with information.

Liesl Theron at Foyles in LondonThe preparation to gather information about transgenderism, Transsexuality, facilitating trans support and in the management of trans organizations, the founder of Gender DynamiX paid a two week visit to various organisations in England in order to expand knowledge. This self- appointed research was undertaken so that I could learn from others.  Furthermore, some very good relationships in the trans sector were built. Places that were visited included support groups such as T Time Monthly, the support group in Edinburgh, Scotland at LGBT Health, T Boys, a social group for FTM’s in Nottingham and Another Name, the trans group facilitated by MCC North London.
