She is a brand ambassador for the London Transgender Clinic, part of Gendered Intelligence’s GIANTS programme, a member of the We Create Space collective and is Head of Communication and Engagement at Birmingham Pride. She also sits on the Crown Prosecution Service’s hate crime panel.
As a proud trans woman, Eva’s story and work have been featured at both national and international level, with appearances in publications such as Metro, Refinery29, Boots Health & Beauty, Pride Life, Cosmopolitan and iNews, in addition to appearances on ITV and being nominated for a National Diversity Award for 2 consecutive years, in the positive role model (LGBT) category. She has delivered and facilitated keynote speeches and discussions to advocate for D&I within numerous organisations, including BP, Facebook, Waitrose, Hewlett Packard and NHS. Eva founded the #PassItOn campaign, which created discussion around trans and non-binary image standards, in addition to better representation of trans and non-binary body types in the media. Her message is simple: be your own kind of beautiful.
