Pride Series - Sean Bower

Pride Series - Sean Bower

Day 7 of Pride Series we talk to UK native Sean Bower. Sean Bower is from a small town in Yorkshire in the North of England. Growing up he lived with his mother and 1 of his brothers, he is the youngest of 5 siblings. Sean loves books, gaming (mainly PC games) and outdoors. When he was young he spent a lot of time outside and traveling. He loves his animals, the more exotic and dangerous, the better. He worked in a zoo as part of his University studies. He expresses himself through his hair colors and style and is currently rocking purple hair. He has several piercings and he wants some tattoos as well. He is not a massive party animal and prefers a night in watching horror movies and eating take out.

Introduction

When I medically transitioned 3 years ago I thought that waiting 6 months to get into an endocrinologist seemed like a century. In the UK, the wait time in certain areas is 2 and a half years or more. Waiting to get the medical treatment you desire to live your authentic self can be hard. Medical transition is not for everyone and not everyone chooses to do it, but for those of us who choose to do it know that patience is a virtue.
