Last week I was joined on my FB live by Rachel Hayden and Jack Holroyde to explore the obstacles and barriers to accessing Musculoskeletal Health Care (often delivered by a Physiotherapist) and how can improve our spaces to make them safer for transgender people and more inclusive generally of the non-binary and LGBTQ+ community.
Rachel is is in transition, learning about gender and herself simultaneously. As a peer supporter and bodywork therapist, her recent explorations of pain science and critical thinking have led her smack into a confrontation with personal authenticity. She now seeks to live from that ambiguous, evolving truth, both as practitioner and as a complete human being.
Jack is a lifelong LGBTQ+ rights advocate who has held a number of directorships and elected positions within the UK LGBTQ+ community before he qualified as a physio in 2018.
