April Gets a Birthday Present

April Ashley award

As I reported on Wednesday, trans icon April Ashley has just turned 80. A splendid innings, my dear, if I might say so.

Well actually I did send her a message. More of that in a little while. First up that photo above, which shows April receiving a Citizen of Honour award from Liverpool City Council. The photo is courtesy of the lovely people at Liverpool Trans, who also came up with the idea of creating a book of birthday wishes for April. I’m in it, because I wanted to tell April about the really exciting thing I have been doing this week — something that would not have been possible without trailblazers like her.

What have I been up to? That will be in the next post.
