Exclusive: Trans and Autistic Singer Fights Discrimination for US Dream

“It seems the whole country has got a problem with me. It’s a wonder that I’m still here”, says Alexandria Adamson.

The 31-year-old transgender singer, who has autism and cerebral palsy, says she has faced discrimination her whole life in the UK. Alexandria, known as Alex by her pals, is struggling to build her career. She is now aiming for the US, having been offered a scholarship for a Country Music degree.

“My drive is to promote visibility and equality for artists with autism and an LGBTQI+ background because every one of us deserves the right to a successful career without discrimination”, she says. “And America has proven that there are ways around that.”

Alex, who lives in Liverpool, needs a birth certificate as part of the US visa process. She says that trying to get the document has affected her mental health and led to meltdowns and suicidal thoughts.

“The government is unfairly marginalising trans and nonbinary people to provide medical evidence just to get a birth certificate”, says Alex.
