The Beaumont Society is a national self-help body run by and for those who cross-dress or are trans-sexual.   They welcome all transgender people and their partners, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, creed or colour, and all varieties from nervous new transgender people to those who are experienced and confident in their second gender. The Beaumont Society has been supporting transgender people and their families for over fifty years. It is run for, and by, transgender people – covering the full spectrum from occasional cross-dressers to post-surgery transsexuals. Through their quarterly magazine and the members’ area of this website, members can communicate with one another and share experiences, news and information on relevant social activities.

The Beaumont Society provides a support network, the society keenly promotes a better understanding of the conditions of transgender, transvestism and gender dysphoria in society, thereby creating and improving tolerance and acceptance of these conditions by a wider public.

Based in the United Kingdom, the Society is a democratically run, non-profit-making organisation funded entirely by membership subscriptions and donations. Their publications include a quarterly Magazine that is essential reading and represents a lifeline for those who are unable to attend one of the Society’s many social groups.

Membership of the society permits access to the Members Area of the website. This contains discussion forums on a wide range of topics, details on events and venues around the UK, access to articles on fashion advice, past copies of the quarterly magazine as e-copies and access to BS publications. The list will grow as the website develops, so join and stay up to date!
