Location: Liverpool, Merseyside
Campaign: To educate people on transgender issues

I knew I was a bit different from the age of five.

 

I didn’t fit in with everyone around me, and growing up I assumed I was a gay male – but I still didn’t fit in.

 

Eventually, at 25 I realised I was a transgender woman.

 

One of the things that made my journey so difficult is the stereotyping of trans people in the media – I couldn’t relate to what I saw.

 

The media seems focussed on sensationalised stories, and how a transgender person ‘ought’ to look on the outside.

 

I want to educate people – especially the younger generation – on what it’s really like to be transgender, and show how actually this is only one aspect of who you really are.
