I identify as male and I've started my hormone therapy.
I was a very happy, well balanced child. However, once puberty set in, I suffered a lot from anxiety and depression. It took until I was around 18 or 19 for me to realise that all these problems where coming from the fact I was living as the wrong gender.
From that point on I began the long and often difficult social transition, which included changing my clothes, getting a new haircut as well as coming out to my friends and family.
Our Fixers project is about helping people to understand gender identity.
I have witnessed the amount of hate that can come towards other trans people in the community and for me it is so vital that we get this education out there.
