What is life like if you don’t fit into any of mainstream society’s ideas of gender or sexuality? Do any of us really fit those ideas, anyway?

In this episode, Finn Ballard talks about life as a transgender man, and his experiences growing up as a trans child in a traditional town in Northern Ireland. Finn talks about his search for an authentic life in a world that is so often hostile to trans people, and the empowerment and joy that has come from being open about who he really is.

Finn Ballard is a historian and tour guide based in Berlin, and also teaches Gender Studies and Media Studies at the Council on International Educational Exchange, an English-speaking institute in Berlin.
