The beauty of transition with Juno Dawson

Beauty from the Heart

Today’s guest is novelist, screenwriter, journalist and columnist, Juno Dawson. Since I first met Juno I’ve learned so much about the issues facing trans people and I really admire her for always standing up for the people around her. Joining me from a cosy corner of Brighton, Juno joins me to talk everything from the Spice Girls to how trans people are represented in the media, and of course gives us a sneak into her make-up bag. Just to mention, in case these are sensitive topics to you, we discuss things such as body dysmorphia and anxiety, and there are some occasional swearwords in this episode.
