This photograph of Ruth, the oldest participant in QueenSpark's Brighton Trans*formed book (about the city's transgender population), accompanys her testimony in Chapter Three in which she says, "... you’ve got to have a successful and balanced life in the one gender before you’ve got the ability to carry through the business of changing. Solve your problems then change."
