About Vic

Vic is a primary school teacher who firmly believes that everyone should have a queer role model somewhere in their life. Growing up under section 28 meant they never had that, so they make it their mission to be proud, always. The generation they teach fills them with hope that the future will be so much better than the right now.

Vic loves the outdoors, travelling and board games. Nothing beats a long walk followed by some afternoon games.


When people ask my pronouns. Watching others have moments of trans joy. Quiet beach spots on hot days so I can swim without feeling like the world is watching. When I get to play red in a board game after letting everyone pick their colour first.

Trans Joy is those moments when you look around and know you are safe to be you, to breathe, to exist. It’s the rush of endorphins when a stranger uses the correct pronouns. It’s a shirt that feels like it fits the way you want it to. It’s those moments when you are seen for you, the real you, the you that you know has always been there.

Being non-binary is hard, but if we don’t stand up and make ourselves heard it will never get any easier. It’s time to be loud and proud to make change happen.

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.
