About Tash

Tash is a non-binary lesbian, studying psychology and hoping to become a part of changing trans healthcare so that it is fully accessible and representative of what trans people need AND WANT.

They are a big fan of people, love their friends and love to meet new people (especially queer people). Huge women’s football fan and newly back to playing, Tash loves watching people be good at what they do, whatever that is – especially music or poetry.


Queer people, kind people, my friends, and strangers in community who support other queer people for just existing. A great example of that is the open mic poetry night at The Actors, pure community joy. Similarly at TReNBI, the joy shared at someone scoring their first goal at a session or really just doing anything. Also seeing other people experiencing joy.

Trans joy is so many things. It can be a private moment when you look in the mirror and finally see the version (or a glimpse of the version) of the person you feel and see yourself as. Or being around fellow trans people and just feeling understood and comfortable being yourself. OR seeing other trans people flourish and experience that joy you’ve felt.

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.
