More help for transsexuals
TRANSSEXUALS are being encouraged to take advantage of a support group after a student died before she could receive help for her gender identity problems.
The Sentinel reported yesterday how Natasha Brown, who was born Charles Corcoran, took an overdose after suffering taunts and an assault.
Her family believe the 20-year-old, of Hanley, could have received more support.
Now the chairman of LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Staffordshire is appealing for other people experiencing problems to come forward.

Peter Rigby said: "We are now a very tolerant county and fortunately that sort of attitude to transgender people is still very minimal."
