"I'm Mel and I'm a Transsexual" will be held at Ely Library this Saturday (February 15) from 10am to 11.30am. Entry is £2.

You don't need to be a Humanist to attend as this is open to everyone who might be interested in learning more.

February is LGBT History Month and Mel's talk will look at transgender terminology, science, history, politics, and law, in the context of her own transition.

A spokesperson for Ely Humanists, said: "The reality is there is a huge amount of misinformation out there, stoking real fears about imaginary issues.

"It is hoped that the talk will dispel myths and allow people to meet and discuss issues with a 'real transsexual' in a calm environment."

Mel will be happy to answer any questions.
