I am not a man or a woman, I am a transexual

By Jamrat Mason, 2010

Transcript of a speech given at Hackney Pride 2010. “My name is Jamrat Mason and I have a vagina. I’m involved in East London Community Ac- tivism but today I’m here to speak “as a trans person” about transgender issues. The term “trans- gender” is a broad term that refers to to a massive spectrum of people who in some way veer away from the gender written on their birth certificate. So, I cannot, in any way whatsoever, be representative of transgendered people. I can only talk about the world as I see it, from where I’m standing, as a transexual.”
