On International Women's Day, this young reporter considers Transgender people in the 21st Century

Transgender in the 21st century.  There are around 40,000 transgender people living in the UK, however how many times does it get mentioned in a day?

Ever since Caitlyn Jenner announced that she was becoming part of the transgender community there has been magazine articles published all over the world, she’s released a TV show and partnered up with makeup brand Mac.

But is all this publicity right? Headlines such as ‘Bruce wants to be a women’ cover front pages however it shouldn’t be about wanting, it should be about feeling comfortable in yourself as a person.
