The i paper shared this performance by trans poet Reece Burrows Lyons. It’s a powerful piece.
Just a girl next door...I was born male, but from my earliest years a part of me deep down always wanted desperately to be a girl. She has grown up with me, and needs to escape, breathe the air and walk the green hills of Yorkshire from time to time.
