We are a UK based news outlet for the trans community.

We assume the reader is trans, we don’t make any attempts to appeal to cis people and the only thing we care about when it comes to what we cover is: “will this be of benefit to our audience?”

This whole thing is made in some peoples bedrooms. We will never do ads and never chase clicks for any reason other than if we think you need to see what we have going on.

We don’t speak for trans people. We try to speak to them.

If we fuck up, contact us, we will try not to be dicks about it.

Who the hell do you think you are?

Fine, this is who we are:

Ashleigh Talbot

Ashleigh is an activist, “media queer” and an excellent bass player in two bands (Ded.Pixl and St. Lucifer). She started reporting on the LGBTQIA+ community back in 2014 when she produced and presented “That’s Pride” on local Manchester television. Once that came to an end, she decided to go off and make her own thing and in 2017 she launched What The Trans!? with Michelle.

You will probably find her at pretty much every queer event in the Manchester area because she NEVER STOPS MOVING.

Alyx Bedwell

Alyx is an activist, a journalist, photographer and prop queen of What The Trans?!. After a long time of making bad minecraft videos, she changed things up a bit and she started covering the trans beat in 2022 after making a video on a conversion therapy protest. She then joined What The Trans after interviewing Michelle in Alyx’s own video!

You will pretty much spot her at any pride or protest event running around with a gigantic camera madly taking photos at everything.
