Sad loss – Lizzie

It was with both shock and great sadness when I heard that Lizzie Vaughan, one of our Oasis ladies, had passed away.

Lizzie first contacted Oasis around August 2015, and arranged to meet at the Bicycle Shop in Norwich.

She wanted to join our group desperate to express her female side, which she had hidden for so long, initially with a view, then to be a bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding.

From our first meeting Lizzy was a bubbly, joyful person and a great asset to our group.
She stayed with us at Oasis for several years, attending when she could and building her confidence. She embarked on her transition journey and became involved in Norwich Pride and the Pride Choir and was out and proud.

Her thespian yearning led her to the Sewell Barn Theatre, as an actress of many roles as well as backstage and front of house. It was always nice to see her from behind the bar on my many visits to various productions.

We only chatted a few weeks ago when she was performing with the Pride Choir at the Stody Lodge Rainbow Day in May.

Oasis sends love and affection to all her friends and family in this difficult time.

She was a one in a million and will be greatly missed. It is a very sad day for our LGBT community.
