Joining us at Audible Studios is Alex Bertie, YouTube vlogger of his transgender journey and author of Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard.
When Alex was born, doctors took one look and put an 'F' for female on the birth certificate, based on genitals. When Alex was 15 he realised he was a transgender man, through many years of struggling with identity.
After coming out to family and friends, Alex battled the health-care system in order to take male hormones, have surgery, change his name and grow a beard.
It is two years since the hardback of Trans Mission published, and we can now hear Alex’s dulcet tones on the audiobook version. When he joined us in studio we spoke about what’s changed since the book released, including mental health, his family relationships, his romantic life and his upcoming move out of his parents' house.
