More To Come......

The Northern Concord is a large group of transgender friends and partners who have been getting together for good times for more than three decades now.

The group first began back in the 1980s in Manchester with weekly meets at The Rembrandt Hotel in what was later to become the city’s renowned gay village.

Its grown and evolved over the years. The members now come from all over the country and the major celebrations each year – Le Big ‘En and the Summer Event - are both held across the Pennines at a Derbyshire hotel.

Janett Scott


It was with great sadness that we heard the news of the death of Janett Scott, a true transgender champion, who passed away in hospital on Saturday, June 20, at the age of 86.


Janett was a former President of the national Beaumont Society and worked for very many years to broaden public understanding and acceptance of transgender people.


She, more than anybody else, helped bring us out of the ‘dark ages’ of the 1980s into more enlightened times.


Whether talking to millions through media appearances or one-to-one with concerned individuals, she was the human voice of our hidden community - always self-effacing and always with a smile.


Thank you Janett, on behalf of us all. We’ll miss you.
