About Bee

Bee has only lived in Brighton a few years, but is using the opportunity at uni to write unapologetically about gender whenever they get the chance. Other than that, they mostly write music, watch gigs, and dye their hair a new colour at least once a week!


When I think about where I find joy, my mind immediately goes to my friends. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing together, being around people that feel like family has allowed me to feel safe and build a home in Brighton that has brought me more joy than I thought possible. And, of course, being a part of Trenbi football and around so many people that understand the Queer experience so deeply has brought me immense joy and pride in being a part of this community.

Trans Joy means feeling completely free and authentic in myself. It’s being surrounded by people that see me as human more than anything else and love me unconditionally for it, and being able to accept and love myself through that.

In a world that often struggles to fully embrace diversity and inclusion, ‘Beyond the Binary – The Spectrum Of Trans Joy’ is a project dedicated to fostering social cohesion and visibility for the trans and intersex community. This fresh initiative from the award-winning queer photographer Chris Jepson seeks to empower and celebrate the trans+ community by showcasing authentic joy through a captivating series of individual and group portraits.
