Photography

Not a professional by any stretch of the imagination - I just take pics of things I like!

My current set up is with a Sony A3000 body and a selection of lenses.

My most recent Instagram posts are displayed below (some were taken with my iPhone!)

Comedy

I have been doing stand up for almost a year now.

I have two main sets - one on queer culture, and one on transitioning.

I'm happy to perform wherever, with enough notice! If you want to book me, fill in the contact section below.

How do you turn on a Socialist in bed?

I’m just the same as any other girl.

Whisper sweet nothings in my ear, like

“Hey comrade... let’s overturn THIS system!”

Poetry

I use poetry as my primary creative outlet.

My debut poetry collection - Poetry for Punks - will debut at the Glasgow Zine Fest in April 2019.

Copies will be available in local independent and queer bookstores - click the previews to enlarge.

Vlogs

I created the Transition Diaries project in Autumn 2017, shortly after coming out as transgender.

The idea of this project was to publish a weekly video, documenting my thoughts, feelings, and banalities of my everyday life.

Unfortunately, I had to mothball the project over New Year 2018, due to a deterioration in my mental health.

The videos are available here:

I also recorded a podcast on Transgender Faces for the Human Faces website

About Me

Mixed race, non binary transfemme, divorced, pansexual, polyamorous, pagan parent.
