She has written regular columns for The Guardian,[2] The New Statesman,[3] and published extensively on film in Filmwaves, Vertigo and Cineaste. She began writing a chronicle of her gender reassignment in 2010, for which she was longlisted for The Orwell Prize.[4]

She is an enthusiastic footballer, and won the Shield with the Brighton Bandits at the 2008 IGLFA World Cup.[5]

She was listed as a "National Treasure" in the Pink List 2011 and included in the separate list of Journalists in the Pink List 2012. The Pink List 2012 citation said:

"Ex-footballer whose unflinching account of undergoing gender reassignment surgery this summer won her a loyal audience. Her blog was longlisted for last year's Orwell Prize; also writes for New Statesman and The Guardian."[6]
