Stacy Novak - RIP

I'm sad to share the news that Stacy Novak, the force behind Transliving International Magazine, passed away on 9th June 2024. She was believed to be the world's first cis-gendered co-ordinator of a transgender group, namely TransEssex, from 1980 onwards.  At first just a local group based in Basildon, Essex, but in the 1990's it expanded to become Transliving, and with Transliving International Magazine the organisation had an international membership.Following Stacy's passing, (and in accordance with Stacy's wishes), after 44 years in publication Transliving International Magazine has ceased with immediate effect.Transliving will continue as a trans-social support group in Stacy's memory. With the continuing support of the trans community all Eastbourne and Bournemouth weekends will go ahead. This is also true of the monthly Essex-based club nights.
