WHO WE ARE -
THE UNIQUE COMMITTEE
Unique is a Constituted Organisation with a Committee elected by the Members.
Mae Unique yn Sefydliad Cyfansoddiadol gyda Phwyllgor a etholir gan Aelodau.
My aim for Unique is to emphasise the positive aspects of being transgender. I like
to think that we help trans people make friends and find a new exciting life.
I spend my time trying to help the trans community and doing diversity training. Elen and I try hard to represent the acceptable face of trans people to the wider community.
My wife did eventually find out, and has been very supportive ever since. That unlocked
the door. I found Unique and with their support Kathy spread her wings.
A couple of years ago, after joining the Beaumont Society, I found my local Unique
group, then meeting at Connah's Quay. I attend a variety of monthly functions, some
local, others as far as Manchester, plus shopping trips as Angelina.
I vividly remember the day I was sitting at a school desk, hating, my genitalia, and knowing I should have been, born a girl. When I got to the point, in life, where I had to face up to this, contact with Unique, was crucial to my abilityto come out.
For years I've dreamt of being able to say that I'm Alice.
Unique has been instrumental in helping me gain the confidence to come out, and start with my transition.
I began my transition over 5 years ago and am now living in North Wales as Jack.
My partner Trudy continues to be my rock and has supported me over the last 20
