Operation Busted Flush

Trump’s treatment of transgender people - especially those in the military - made me wonder what would happen if a group of trans veterans decided to take action.

Transgender Tales

Straddles the line between fiction and non-fiction.

It includes a diary that I kept when I first moved to Manchester and was deciding whether or not I needed to transition completely as well as some humorous anecdotes from that period (1997-9) but it also includes some stories that I wrote at the time for Cross Talk, the Northern Concord group magazine - which are republished on this website.

Please look around – the coffee is in the filter machine, tea bags in the cupboard, sugar on the side and milk in the fridge (along with some soft drinks if you’d prefer).

I hope you’ll enjoy my ramblings.
