Where am I now?
Well, right this minute I am sat in my living room in my flat overlooking the sea, close to Brighton. Ok that's a bit literal but one of the unanswered questions from MTS was about how I was looking for somewhere to live so it's something I get asked a lot.
I'd say my life has changed completely in the past year, my confidence levels are through the roof compared to before and I have changed so much physically too. I don't really have any regrets about opening up my life to millions of strangers, I think we all achieved so much in terms of educating people about the issues that trans folk face and giving others inspiration to have the confidence to be who they truly are that it's impossible to look back and regret it.
The only thing I will never get used to though is how I still get recognised on the street by people, I always imagined MTS would be a late night TV documentary that would be quickly forgotten. I've always disliked the concept of being famous and feel embarrassed when people refer to me as a TV star or something. I took part in an educational documentary, not XFactor or another "get famous quick" type show.
Interestingly, I posted this on a forum detailing my goals about taking part in MTS:
