Gender dysphoria, femininity and why being transgender is not a choice - with AJ Clementine.

October 23, 2019

“There’s one role you really get in your life and that’s playing yourself” - wise words from our guest this week, 23-year-old Melbourne-based content creator and LGBTQI+ advocate AJ Clementine, who shares her struggles with growing up with (and navigating!) what was only more recently medically diagnosed as gender dysphoria, and it’s treatment - which for AJ, came in the form of sexual reassignment surgery only 12 months ago. Her story has made national news headlines and despite facing trolls along the way, she continues to educate, inspire and advocate for better education and acceptance of trans people in greater society by so openly and generously sharing her experiences. We talk transitioning, why being transgender is not a choice and what femininity means in today’s world.
