I first met Lexi at the beginning of her medical gender affirmation journey in 2020. At 58 years old, she had identified and lived as a woman for decades behind closed doors. She supported herself and funded her transition through sex work and cleaning nightclub toilets. Like many Trans Women she spent her early years rejected and isolated from family and friends. Apart from her former partner Laura, she still spends much of her time alone. Now at age 60, she has started to venture out, exploring what this next chapter means for her as an out Trans Woman and finding her place in the world.
