About James

James is a very proud transgender man and an even prouder cat dad! He has a little Campervan, is a sucker for a road trip and loves to chase a sunset. James grew up by the beach and can never be too far away from the sea – If Moana was to ever come out as Trans – they’d be him!


Waking up everyday and feeling 2kg lighter!

Trans joy to me is choosing courage over comfort. It’s showing myself the self-love I have always deserved but struggled to give. It’s growing to be more than I ever believed I could be and knowing that I deserve it too.

Trans joy is a feeling of transcendence and it’s beautiful.

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.
