In January 2016, The Conversations Project was launched on trans feminist Cristan Williams’s TransAdvocate blog. It was born to explore (and, as it turns out, refute) the notion that radical feminism has a problem with the existence of trans people.

The Conversations Project was started by Williams and radical feminist John Stoltenberg. As described in the “About” section: “Through historical research, interviews, open dialogue, commentary and academic presentations, we hope to bring attention to a decades-old intersectional trans, intersex and genderqueer inclusive radical feminist tradition.

The Project is rooted in the voice of community; at its heart is a discussion group comprised of students, professors, community members as well as numerous trans, intersex, genderqueer and radical feminist activists, authors and speakers. Sex and gender issues are discussed through a critical lens. Group members are encouraged to submit commentary pieces, which are peer-reviewed and, if approved, published in the Project’s quarterly journal: Intersections: a Journal of Trans and Radical Feminism.

Speaking to The Advocate , a leading source for extensive and up-to-date LGBT news, Williams says, “I discovered all of this rich history that is absolutely beautiful and absolutely courageous that I had no clue about and had not seen recorded in a book or online anywhere. It was an absolute shame that these voices had been forgotten or buried. Reclaiming those narratives, those histories, is very, very important.

Katie has been integral in developing the operations side of GenderGP since day one – she was Dr Helen’s first hire! Her day-to-day role involves working out the practicalities of how best to connect our service users with the care that they need. Katie was instrumental in introducing the GenderGP Portal and is our go-to person when the team encounters a challenge relating to the practicalities of patient care.

 

We would like to reassure our patients following the latest attack by the Telegraph on care for trans youth that media scrutiny and fake news will not impact our commitment to the community.

We will continue to do everything that we can to ensure that those people who need care have access to it. GenderGP is an international organisation which operates 100% legally and we are committed to improving trans-healthcare at a fundamental level throughout the world.

Trans people exist, the treatment pathways are clear. The scandal is not that GenderGP is providing care but that national healthcare providers are withholding care.

We will never give up.
