what does it mean to be transgender?

a trans, or transgender person is a person who's gender differs from the sex they were assigned at birth.

this is the trans flag. the pink represents baby girls, the blue represents baby boys and the white represents those who are transitioning or don't define themselves within the gender binary.

Well, I have a complicated relationship with it, if I’m honest.

I began questioning my gender identity in my early teen years. I was always ‘boyish’, and I began wearing stereotypical ‘boy’ clothing when I was around eight because my mum believes that clothing is clothing. Still, I always pushed the thought that I could be trans to the very back of my mind.

I’m Finchley (they/him) and to jump to it, I’m transgender and autistic. I like getting that out of the way a little earlier on because it changes people’s social expectations of me, and gives me agency to make clarifications.
