Understanding is the first story in the series. The story follows a non-binary transgender character who finds themselves time and time again in the same difficult situation. A close friend of theirs, Laura, outs Skylar as trans to her friends, not realising that even with good intentions, outing someone can be harmful and even put them in danger. Can the two of them resolve this tricky situation before things get out of hand?
There are many charities and organisations that support trans people of all ages, and knowing that you are not alone in what you're feeling and going through can help massively. Please reach out and get the help you need.
