With the Lovely Claire - Plymouth Pride 2017, by Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

A SELFIE, WITH THE SELFIE QUEEN, CLAIRE :)

When we got to the Hoe, a big grassy area over looking the ocean, I was still content. A few of us went for a little walk, and I managed to pluck up the courage to ask Claire for a selfie together :) I’m so happy to have this photo. Claire is so nice, she’s helped me a lot over the past few months, so it’s cool to finally have a photo together :)

BREAKING THE CYCLE

There is so much denial, shame and guilt involved with being Transgender. That’s why the most important step to accepting the truth, is to break the cycle…

TRANSGENDER ABUSE

A trip to the wig shop was supposed to be fun, but it turned into one of the saddest nights of my life.
