A man trapped in a woman’s body is drawing on his own experience to smash stereotypes and promote understanding about the transgender community.
Born a girl, Alfie Austin, 19, from Salford, says he always knew he was different. But it wasn’t until he was 17 that he realised he was a young man trapped in a woman’s body.
Coming out as female to male transgender at 18, he recently started taking testosterone and finally feels he can be himself.
However, from losing close friends who couldn’t come to terms with his new life, to being thrown out of both male and female toilets, Alfie’s life as a young man hasn’t been without challenges.
Now working with Fixers, a national charity to support young people who have overcome adversity, Alfie is making a music video to promote greater respect and understanding of the issue.
