The ups and downs of being a transgender teenager with a talent for musical theatre. Third series of drama by Mark Davies Markham.

The third series continuing the journey of Amy, just your average 13 year old transgender child in the modern world.

A very ordinary family has come to terms with the less ordinary experience of Amy, who was born Ben. In this third series, Amy chases her dream of musical theatre but there is trouble ahead when a petition is started about which school toilet she uses.

This accessible new drama was inspired by real life experiences.

Thanks to Susie Green and the parents at Mermaids, a charity offering support to gender variant children, teenagers and their families (www.mermaidsuk.org.uk), and the Tavistock Clinic.
