  • Post author:

Benjamin Boyce has created a series of sensitive and in-depth interviews with men and women who have pursued medical transition and then, having found it was not the solution they thought it would be, have subsequently detransitioned. The full series can be found here.

Particularly relevant to parents at Bayswater Support are the interviews with Watson, a Scottish woman who discusses the approach of the gender clinic she attended in Scotland, who also wrote some advice for our parents and the interview with Helena, a US detransitioner, who discusses the influence of social media on the development of her trans identity. Rarely do men and boys appear in articles or other media covering detransition, but Benjamin has compassionately interviewed Chris, a detransitioned man about his undiagnosed autism and co-existing mental health issues, factors common to many people with a trans identity.
