Caster Semenya Verdict
In other news, Dr Helen talked to iNews about the Caster Semenya verdict and why discriminating against the athlete for being at a genetic advantage is no different to penalising basketball players for being tall, or swimmers with long arms and large feet.

My trans journey on the NHS: May

This last month has been full of ups and downs, trying to figure out what has changed, what am I achieving and what I want. I say this because I am being asked about surgery at the GIC in Sheffield.

Marianne continues to share her journey here.
