Our guest on ConversayTrans this week is the illustrious Jayson Pope, a young activist who found community and conviction in the BeLonGTo Youth Services. He has been publicly out as a trans man since he was 13, so his youth is not an indication of his inexperience in being trans. His story is one of hope, with a deep support system that included his parents, friends, BeLonGToo and at times even his secondary school. Initially at ConverSayTrans we ask our guests to bring an item that represents a pivotal moment in their life, and Jayson’s gift is a ring from his own 21st Birthday as he talks with Jules and Alexandra the Irish secondary education system and his activism.
