Tell me your story

First off let me say: black lives matter, trans lives matter, black trans lives matter. This is obvious to any right-thinking person, I know. But the time has come - to not just be not racist, not transphobic - we have to
 be anti-racist, anti-transphobic. We must stand against those who deal in hate.

I have always stood up for and hand in hand with my trans siblings. But that's not enough. Following the murder of George Floyd and the relentless hounding, othering, bullying and killing of trans people - disproportionately trans people of colour - and the horrible, hurtful words of she-who-must-not-be-named - I feel like I have to do something, I have to put my money where my mouth is.

I don't have any money, but I do have privilege so I want to use it. I'm privileged to have been able to afford to learn the skills and buy the kit needed to make films that tell stories. I want to help you tell yours.

Are you a trans person, a trans person of colour, or a gender-diverse person? Then I want to make a film with you. I was the first storyteller in the third sector in Wales, I create digital content and stories for a living. Telling stories through film and digital content is my passion.

Here's some of my work:

You might be wondering why I'm doing this. The answer's easy - it's because I give a shit.

I want to hear from you if you're a Welsh trans person

Here's a quick FAQ:

About you
You're trans
You're Welsh (born in Wales, living in Wales, speak Welsh or not. If you feel Welsh, that's good enough for me, cariad)
You're willing to share your story

What you get
My time (filming, editing)
A 5-10 minute film to do with what you want (copyright and ownership will be yours)
Social media graphics to help share your film
A new friend  and ally

How do I get in touch?
Shout me on Twitter @andygwaith
Comment on this blog (comment are moderated)

Is there a time limit?
No. I'm totally flexible. It makes sense to wait a bit due to covid, but there's no rush

Please share this with anyone. Diolch x
