The Ultimate Adventure

My Name’s Ash, I’m an actor, a presenter, a brother, an uncle, a son and I also just happen to be a transman. I transitioned back in 2012 and I can’t quite believe how much my world has changed in the space of just 5 years.

I’ve always been awful at decision making but something inside me knew that transitioning was going to be the biggest and most important decision I’ll ever have to make. In 2012 after a troubled few years of feeling lost and alone I finally came out and said it; Life would have been easier if I’d of been born a boy. If I’m honest I’d always known, I just didn’t know how to say it, and I owe the credit to my sister. She sat me down one sunny after and said: “are you struggling with your gender?”… I simply replied ‘yes’ and that was one of the most important conversations I’ll ever have, and I owe all the thanks in the world to my lovely sister and friend Sophie for her support. I know I’m extremely lucky to have been given that lifeline but nothing could quite prepare me for the life changes I was about to embark on. I’d always known something didn’t sit quite right with my birth gender, it was like I was playing a part in someone else’s life. I didn’t feel comfortable in that body or in how the world saw me and interacted with me. I didn’t know how to say the words. Growing up, there were no role models or help. It was almost like changing gender would be a mission impossible. But after seeing some things on the TV and YouTube I decided to just go for it - well I couldn’t really stop it.
