Back to Blighty now after an epic time in Iceland. It's time to get back on it, with film-making, book writing and adventure planning with my lovely Owl. So wonderful to have this partner in crime and love. ❤️
At a wedding in northern Iceland and the reception is at a car museum! It was a super short ceremony and everything is really chilled. Owl and I were asked to host Reykjavik Pride, which is such a great honour - and we weren't able to this year, so hoping we are invited to do that next year.

I recently accepted an honorary doctorate from the University of Brighton. It was the first standing ovation to ever be given for an honorary doctorate at this University. On the certificate for the Doctor of the Arts, it states: 'in recognition of their major contribution to raising the profile, both nationally and internationally, of issues affecting trans people and the promotion of arts in the media.’ It was an incredibly emotional day. As a non binary trans activist, working solidly over the past 6 years to support trans rights and make changes on a local, national and global level, it's such an honour to be given this award by the University of Brighton. I'm aware there's so much more work to do.
Chatted to Theresa May the other day at 10 Downing St about marriage equality and non binary issues. Sometimes progress for trans rights feels so frustratingly slow, but I try to use every opportunity to plant a seed of change.
Happy Pride, Brighton and beyond! We are so happy to be here, as last year we were in Iceland. After all the efforts for Trans Pride it's lovely to just enjoy today. There is a Trans tent in the park and a few of our films are showing on the big screen although not sure what time. Enjoy your day!
