Bea Wood

I’m Bea from North Lincolnshire. I started modelling a few months ago with a dream and goal to promote the LGBT community and help as many people be true to themselves as possible. I’m part of this to try to get a voice and a platform to help others. It would mean the world to me to win and carry on what I’ve started on a bigger scale. My modelling name is Dark Butterfly Model. Love to all! X

Personal Statement
I’m a transgender woman and activist for issues affecting our community. I started my transition in 2016 through self prescribed hormones and was accepted by Leeds GIC earlier this year to begin transition via the NHS. I’m proud to be a entrant into this years Miss Transgender UK and thrilled to at the opportunity it provides Transwomen to celebrate their diverse beauty.


My transitional name is Sherri, I am a British-Pakistani-Muslim transgender person. I am at early stages of my transition. The reason why I transition bit late in life because I wanted to get financially and mentally stable first. The reason to enter MTUK is simple that I want to motivate other trans-girls who are trapped in social stigma of so called do’s and don’t and also to help pursue my carrier too. It tears my eyes seeing suicide rates in trans-community. Transition is not easy so we got to be brave whether someone support us or not. There is no point in giving up on life because of what-so-ever reason!





It was just a rebirth, a resurrection almost a celebration of my life on earth.
I am truly happy now ,even though, i know i can be a bit of a cow,
My third transition is going so perfectly, everyone has been like “wow”.

Life is great, I have finally accepted my fate, i truly feel so elate.

Here I stand at Miss Transsexual UK 2016, and believe me,
i am so proud to be seen.
Remember, never, never, never give up on that dream.

Once again, Life is great
