I’m a 26-year-old gay transgender man, living in Leeds with my husband Alex.

My research interests concern transgressive sexual behaviour in medieval and early modern England and France, and my PhD investigates Edward II’s developing historiographical reputation during the period 1305-1700. For my research background, please see my academic page.

I’m also a transgender awareness trainer, specialising in tailored training sessions for higher education institutions and non-profit organisations. You can find more information on my training page. If you’d like to discuss how I can help your staff develop confidence and familiarity with trans issues, please get in touch.

I’m an assistant coordinator (formerly lead coordinator) of the charity York LGBT History Month, who coordinate a programme of public events to celebrate LGBT history in York each February. From 2014-16 I served as outreach coordinator, supporting schools to include LGBT history in their curriculum.

As well as training, academia and activism, I’m a musician with Hall Royd Band and accapella choir Free Range.
