We first met Ada Macey via the newsletter about a year ago, soon after she came out as transgender and had begun the process of transitioning. Ada was keen to share her experience at parkrun, in particular, to tell her story about the inclusive and accepting community at Chermside parkrun.

The Trans20 Project is an Australian-first, 20 year longitudinal study, which is aiming to improve medical and mental health outcomes for transgender youth. The study is being led by Associate Professor Michelle Telfer, Head of Department of Adolescent Medicine, who said this will enable the current generation of trans and gender diverse children, and adolescents receiving care from the RCH Gender Service, the opportunity to improve the lives of transgender youth in the future. So difficult, in fact, that in Australia today, 80 per cent of transgender young self-harm and 48 per cent attempt suicide by the time they are years-old. Longitudinal studies have now commenced in the US and Europe.

So many of us experience a lovely sense of belonging to the parkrun community. For others, the inclusivity of parkrun means much more. It means being recognised and respected as an individual.
