A conversation with Charlie Orriss
Recorded on 23 March 2021. Duration 25 mins approx.
Charlie’s pronouns are he/him, and he identifies as an FTM (Female To Male) trans man. Find out what that means to Charlie in this episode.
We also talk about labels as a protection as well as a hindrance, how gender and mental health go hand in hand, the therapeutic benefits of cosplay, and what Dissociative Identity Disorder can be like.
“When changes started happening [after taking testosterone] that’s when I was like ok, this is how it’s supposed to be. This is how I should have been a long time ago.”
TRANSCRIPT [expand to read] – COMING SOON
“I have multiple mental health issues that I also struggle with on a day to day basis. I would love to be a mental health ambassador in the future. A random fact about me is I love fossil hunting.”
