As someone who is on the queer spectrum and transgender, coming to university felt like a huge step. Coming out is a tiring thing to do, and the idea of having to come out to flatmates and coursemates was daunting.

I’m an undergraduate at the university, studying Music and Music Technology. For the most part, I’m writing a zombie book or one about an amnesiac with powers. Sometimes I’ll play the drums if I have the time and a kit to play on. Though sometimes I just sit around and read fiction or scroll through social media endlessly.
