THE NEW GIRL: A TRANS GIRL TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
‘The New Girl’ is a memoir by Rhyannon Styles published by Headline.
In a time when the world is finally waking up to transgender people, Rhyannon opens up to us, holding nothing back in this heartbreakingly honest telling of her life. Through her catastrophic lows and incredible highs, Rhyannon paints a picture of what it’s like to be transgender in glorious technicolor. From cabaret drag acts, brushes with celebrity and Parisian clown school, Rhyannon’s story is like nothing you’ve read before.
From 2015 – 2017 Rhyannon was ELLE UK’s transgender columnist. ‘The New Girl’ documents her experiences of transitioning; from the awkward beginnings of navigating gendered changing rooms, telling her family that she identified as transgender and to finding love. In total she penned 32 columns and recorded 4 videos for ELLE TV. The video ‘Sister, you’re a lady now’ has been viewed over 140,000 times on YouTube. The media exposure catapulted Rhyannon into the spotlight, and she has become a prominent speaker on gender related topics.
Rhyannon is one of 8 transgender women photographed by queer photographer Eivind Hansen to help raise awareness around the UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign. Hansen’s emphasis on trans women highlights the fact that the worldwide life expectancy of trans women is only thirty-five years old, with trans women of colour facing the bulk of this violence.
Tatty Devine have teamed up with Poppy’s Papercuts to create an exclusive collection of female focused designs in celebration of International Women’s Day and in partnership with the WOW festival. Meet GIRLS GOT IDEAS!
The collection celebrates six inspiring and talented contemporary women, whose individual stories have been transformed into a series of playful, yet empowering jewellery.
Rhyannon’s pieces are inspired by symbols of hope from her childhood and her thoughts on motherhood, taking the form of a delicate ballet slipper and hand inked earrings bearing the message, ‘Love to Give’.
