Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Sowerby Bridge, Calderdale
Campaign: To create more support for LGBT young adults

Realising I was meant to be a man left me feeling mixed emotions. I was both happy and confused.

When I first started transitioning from female to male, I found an LGBT youth group which was brilliant, but once I hit my early twenties, I just felt a bit out of place.

With Fixers, I want to encourage greater understanding and support for LGBT young adults, particularly in rural communities.

I don’t want anyone with similar experiences to feel alone.

Rachel Roantree is helping me with this Fix.

Andrew Gilliver from the organisation supports my project. He agreed to be interviewed to appear in my broadcast piece.
