Live true: My transgender life in adland
I'm a 39-year-old mixed-race transgender female. I am transgender because of a condition called Gender Dysphoria, which causes a discrepancy between a person's physical sex and their gender ID. When the two are in equilibrium, the term for that person is cisgender. Medical science currently has no reason as to what causes Gender Dysphoria. Transgender people are trans by nature, it's not a lifestyle choice. Although I was assigned male at birth, I identify as female. My pre-transition life was me pretending to be a guy, failing at it every day and in turn being made miserable for 36 years. 24 Jun 2020 Read more

What a time to be young in South Africa! Youth are the ones we have been waiting for!
As I enter the last lap of my third decade on this earth, by virtue of my physical stature, I am often exposed to a first-hand sample of what youth status must feel like today.

Interestingly, the specific experience in my working week was being told (the opposite of being consulted) in front of a panel of my potential suppliers, what inputs I needed to perform my job; a job whose authority I hold by designation... a discussion for another day. 28 Jun 2019 Read more
