About Raphael

A Green Party Councillor for Round Hill Ward and opposition spokesperson for Culture & Tourism for Brighton & Hove City Council, Raphael has been out as transgender only fairly recently and likes playing football with other trans, non-binary and intersex people as its a great safe place to have some fun.

Trans joy is being able to live well and freely.

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.
