About Rowan

As a non binary trans woman living in Brighton, Rowan enjoys sports, music and cinema, and is happiest when surrounded by nature. She has been out for 8 years, and has found a place of joy within the trans community.


Friendship, community and being outdoors. I enjoy a challenge and love to compete in sports and games for the joy of taking on something difficult.

Trans joy is existing, thriving and having fun with members of my community in a space free from the constraints of cisnormative ideas of gender.

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.
