Our heartwarming new trans related film titled ‘Growing up transgender, almost 60 years apart’ was released on Wednesday (on youtube and FB) and in less than a week our FB version has had 1.2+ million views and 17,ooo+ shares. As a consequence we are up 5,000 followers on our My Genderation FB page. We’re gathered some press around the film including one in Pink News: ‘Trans Girl and Women Discuss Growing Up Decades Apart’ and an article in SBS in Australia.

The film is a very simple conversation, but the stark contrast in the lived experiences of Josie and Poppy shows us how far we have come, and that we must continue to ensure a better quality of life for our younger generation. It is a powerful reminder that all trans people were children once, and if they would’ve had the opportunity to be themselves at a young age, it would’ve saved them decades of hardship, shame and distress.
