Although Gavin’s physical transition was as positive as possible, the more subtle process of discovering himself was a little more challenging. Gavin talks about the process of his transition.
Gavin’s story is one of a series of stories collected at the Moving Trans* History Forward Symposium, put on by the Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria in March of 2014. The MT*HF symposium graciously allowed onmyplanet.ca to record stories on site during the symposium.
Gavin will also be featured in The Transgender Project documentary produced by ichannel.
