    “You want everything. Fine! How about this? You're hurting me. Every time you misgender me, call me ‘she’, dead name me! How much that physically hurts me. Makes me want to tear off my skin cause it feels so alien to me. That sometimes I'll spend hours upon hours scrubbing my skin till it’s raw just to turn the mental agony into something I can attempt to understand!” My Queer Diary is the story of a young trans teen's coming to terms with his identity through the age old Coming Out narrative, in order to explore modern ideas of discrimination towards the Irish Trans Community. The piece comments on everything from lack of LGBTQ+ education, the overtly long trans healthcare lists and Ireland's lack of Hate Crime legislation. All shown through the diary entries of our protagonist, Blake.
