I believe there are as many gender identities as there are people, all unique, all constantly being explored in conscious and unconscious ways.

Juliet Jacques


From transphobic media to routine sexual harassment, learning to live as a transgender person means dealing with a seemingly-constant barrage of cruelty and debate about your right to exist.

Exploring one's identity is a beautiful thing, and everyone should expect the right to do so without judgment or threats – yet for trans people, this is often not the case.

Juliet Jacques is a British writer and filmmaker. Her memoir is adapted from a Guardian blog series, which told the story of her transition and experience as a transgender woman.

In Trans, Jacques set out to change the narrative on the transgender experience, dispelling myths and telling the truth about what it means to live as a transgender woman in modern Britain.
