Q: Do you feel being trans holds you back from your career choice?
A: No, if anything I think it’ll probably help it. Basically my dream job is to be a show runner on a show I created (or Doctor Who, I desperately want Steven Moffat’s job, I have such big plans for that show) and to be a novelist. I think being trans would absolutely help me sell books and the idealist in me wants to believe that it wouldn’t be a problem for working in television.
At the moment while I put myself though university I work in a grocery store and while I don’t thing my employers would have a problem with my being trans I can imagine having to put up with a lot of crap from small minded customers. Something I’m pretty sure I would struggle with, for as it stands I already have a hard bitting my thong around them. I shudder to think what I might say or do if I felt I was being verbally attacked.
