Name: Kieran Benito-Knight
Age: 21
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Campaign: To improve understanding of gender identity

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.

Amy Creek helped me with this Fix.
