Fifty Shades of Gender podcast graphic with Felix

Episode 21

A conversation with Felix

NON-BINARY, TRANSGENDER, QUEER

Recorded on 18 November 2020. Duration 17 mins approx.

Felix’s pronouns are they/them. They are non-binary transgender and describe their sexuality as queer. Find out what that means to Felix in this episode.

We also talk about the difficulty with fitting in boxes, having to perform gender, how body and identity are different, the binariness in teaching and sports, and how you can figure out your gender at any age.

“How I feel that my body should be is a separate thing from how I identify internally. If I’d been assigned male at birth, I’d still be non-binary, but I probably wouldn’t feel the need to make changes to my body.”

About Felix

“I’m a figure skater and university student, and plan to go into teaching after graduation. I’m the oldest of 7 siblings and live with my partner. I wanted to do this podcast to raise awareness of the different types of journeys that trans people can experience, and to show people that there is no “right way” to be trans.”
