Quests By Community: Years unhappy, Wrong body – To now, a Happy Place

Tonight, we meet Penn, who affirmed their true self later in life. Realised being male at the age of four and a half five, went through life extremely unhappy with parental, and societal, pressures to behave in a feminine, lady-like manner: mentally painful, very painful, all exacerbated by living in a regional area.

Hosted by Ricki Spencer, a Trans Sociologist.
