Confidence and awareness is freedom, it brings freedom, it yields freedom
I work with small groups on an interactive basis and also give lecture-style training to large groups.
I alter my diversity motivational speaking to suit the audience.
Society is growing in inclusivity and open mindedness. People are now embracing the freedom to live as their true selves, being proud of their differences. There are more gender identities than ever and a need for understanding of different abilities.
Challenges occur when attitudes, environments, scheduling and peers are not lenient or aware of changes that could aid accessibility for people who are differently able or are Trans*. Even small considerations can go a long way to making life easier and mean that somebody may feel more included.
Whether it in the healthcare, educational or work environment, it is imperative to have a good level of awareness, sensitivity and knowledge about Trans and disability related issues.
Trans* is an inclusive term used to include anybody with identities on the gender spectrum, excluding Cis-men and Cis-women. The umbrella includes: Non-Binary, Genderqueer, and gender non-conforming identities, eg: Gender-fluid, A-gender, genderless, Bigender, third gender and two-spirit. As well as binary identities: Transman and Transwoman, Transgender, Transsexual.
We can all feel stuck at times. We may feel overwhelmed or like we are unable to keep up with others. Differently abled or not, we are able to achieve anything we set our minds too.
I offer workshops for small or large groups to motivate and empower.

Feedback from Social Care students at the University of Suffolk
“Leo was open, honest and we felt able to ask personal questions which he responded to with courage, understanding and humour.”
“Leo highlighted the importance of ‘tuning in’ and showed us the importance of being able to live, how he wanted to live.”
“Leo remained optimistic in the face of bleak realities, including dwindling resources for both trans people and those with disabilities.”
“Leo was incredibly empathic and showed care and understanding to other people’s different beliefs, attitudes and nerves towards him as a transman with a disability.”
“Leo was quite inspiring; he is not dealing with just 1 level of discrimination, but many and he showed us that it is important to not give up on your dreams, but to be persistent and brave.”
“Leo taught us that it is important to not make assumptions and encouraged us to see things from his point of view.”
“Leo gave us practical ideas in how to approach our social work practice moving forward. For example, around the important use of pronouns and language.”
