Rosie Hopegood, journalist with the Sunday Mirror, and I had a 2-hour chat a few weeks ago under the twinkling London Eye. Today the result of our spirited, genuine conversation has been published: an article about the transgender part of my life journey.
As a good friend of mine pointed out “Rosie’s article portrays someone who has made huge decisions and stayed sane and positive. It is difficult to condense your life story into one feature and she’s put a positive spin on it rather than going down the pity or self indulgent route.” I have to agree and, as such, Rosie’s article fits perfectly to the overall spirit of ‘Paralian’.
Sitting here, writing this, and basking in the warm summer sun I am reminded of Forrest Gump, who summed up our existence so aptly, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” True that. Thankfully, there are some pretty awesome, delicious bites mixed in with the bitter ones. xxx
