Excerpts from this interview were played on The Informer on Monday 4th September 2017.

The Telethon Kids Institute survey ‘Trans Pathways’ gave a great qualitative insight into the difficulties young trans people are up against, but statistics can only tell you so much of the story.

Dove is a twenty-seven year old genderfluid trans femme kindergarten teacher, writer and performer. They live with the realities of how being transgender in our political and social climate interacts with mental health.

They experience depression and anxiety, and are in the process of being assessed for AD(H)D, C-PTSD and BPD. In this interview, they offer their insightful and heartfelt opinions and observations on what it’s like being mentally ill and trans.

Thanks for speaking to Lara for The Informer Dove.
