Ben, 26, grew up in a small coastal town. A keen musician, player of all sports and committed academic coaster at school, he went on to gain a degree in humanities. Having travelled far and wide, Ben recently moved to London. He has been surviving on odd jobs, while gaining experience in journalism, exploring the city by bike and sampling a wide array of ales. Ben has experienced gender dysphoria for as long as he can remember, but did not identify as transgender until his early twenties. He has lived full-time as male for the past year.
