Transgender stories: 'People think we wake up and decide to be trans'
One of my earliest memories, about five years old, was how yelled at by a teacher for going to the toilet with the girls. About the same age I realised I was different to these other boys.
At the age of nine I refused to have my hair cut. School was extremely difficult.

I got bullied a lot. I was picked on for being too thin, for being feminine, for not liking football, for hanging round with girls, for having long hair.
They mocked everything they could think of in terms of gender and sexuality. I learned what trans meant through YouTube.
I was basically just trying to Google what I felt. I never really told my family. They know, but I just started transitioning. The became about trans people is, we feel very transvestite.
