About Me

I am a freelance author based in London. As well as publishing two books (see the Books section), I write short fiction, as well as journalism on literature, film, art, music, politics, gender, sexuality and football. My work has appeared in The Guardian, for whom I documented my gender reassignment in a series entitled A Transgender Journey, as well as The New Statesman, London Review of Books, Granta, Sight & Sound, Frieze, The Washington Post, TimeOut, New Humanist, Five Dials, New Inquiry, Berfrois, 3:AM and many other places.

I was included on The Independent on Sunday Pink List of influential LGBT people in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, and appeared on a panel at the PEN International Congress in 2014. My Transgender Journey column was long-listed for the Orwell Prize for blogs in 2011, and Trans: A Memoir was runner-up in Polari LGBT Literary Salon’s First Book Award for 2016.
