Through Her Eyes – a film about transphobia. Lily Padma and Team are a small team of transgender volunteers working very long hours alongside normal jobs to produce a short film, and linked campaign. Their aim is to create a greater sense of empathy and understanding towards the trans* community; they want to reduce the number of young trans* individuals who have had to live through abuse and discrimination, as they have.
Galop’s Celebration of Voice fundraising event – Friday, 11th October
Those of you in/near London will know the invaluable work that Galop has been doing, “policing the police”, for LGBT people.
In the last year, some of Galop’s work, for instance on “Operation nutmeg”, has directly benefitted areas all over the country.
Like many LGBT charities they are suffering terribly during the recession, but one unpaid worker has been organising a benefit event taking place this Friday.
