WOMEN OF THE BEAUMONT SOCIETY (WOBS)
- October 2004 - New information about the third series of "The Change." Info about Tam Sanger removed now her study is complete.
- September 2004 - Material brought up to date, including the loss of the Southern Region phone number and the new edition of the Beaumont Trust book. Coding slighly simplified to reduce the possibility of conflict with older or simplified browsers
- October 2003 - Added new page 'Research' to support Tam Sanger, a PhD student at Queens University in Belfast (NB: October 2004: This research is now complete) as I have taken part in postgraduate research in England. Academic study can help to expand the general understanding of transgender behaviour in society. Also, I have altered the title on each page in the hope that WOBS will appear in a keyword search using Google.
- September 2003 - Re-design of the WOBS site following comments about accessibility and viewing problems. I hope this is readable to all, and would be particularly interested to hear from anyone viewing this via a system not based on a PC with Internet Explorer 5.0 (or higher). Added on the links page 'The Samaritans'.
- June 2003 - Added new page 'Putting It On' article by Amy Bloom, as featured in The Guardian Newspaper May 24, 2003, reprinted by kind permission of Bloomsbury, and on the links page TG Cambridge and UK Intersex Association.
Amy Bloom is the author of two collections of stories, A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You and Come to Me, and of Love Invents Us, a novel. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Antaeus, Story, Mirabella, Vogue, The Atlantic Monthly, and The New York Times Magazine, among other publications, and in many anthologies here and abroad, including The Best American Short Stories; Prize Story: The O. Henry Awards; The Secret Self: A Century of Short Stories by Women; and The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction. Also a practicing psychotherapist, she lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.
- May 2003 - Added on the links page 'Straight Spouse Network' and corrected the 'WOBS logo' background image as this should have been appearing along the left edge of each page.
- February 2003 - Added new page 'The Change' radio play, to support the second series as featured on BBC Radio 4, featuring Linda Bellingham, Chris Ellington and Sylvia Syms. Revised the Website to validate with the World Wide Web consortium or W3C for short.
Di Aitchison, WOBS Coordinator, also appears in several episodes. In the first series we hear how a wife copes with discovering her husband is a Crossdresser. The second series continues on the repercussions using comedy to effect, but also reminding listeners with real life situations, such as calling a helpline. The page includes pictures taken 'on set' at the recording studios in London.
- July 2008. Addition of new page: "A Significant Other View: Don't call me a L......"
- September 2008. Addition of new page: "Book Review: "She's Not the Man I Married" by Helen Boyd"
