COVID created a safe space for these trans Australians. It wasn’t the case for all

For Zira Dreemurr, 21, who grew up in Seymour, 100km north of Melbourne, without much in the way of access to trans support services or positive role models, the lockdown proved mentally challenging – especially after their top surgery was cancelled twice because it is considered “non-essential”.

“Trying to access anything medical – even mental health support – was a real pain. My surgery was meant to happen in November and then December. Unfortunately, they were both cancelled as other people got priority over me.”

“I do understand that others need to access the medical services and I am trying really hard not to be resentful because mine was always cancelled. But the amount of mental health problems that it has caused – especially on top of the lockdowns – has been really difficult. It was uncomfortable, to say the least.”
