Up until the age of 28, Juno was known to most as the best-selling author of young adult fiction - James Dawson. But in that year, she entered the process of physically becoming the person she always felt she was and adopted the female pronoun. Now Juno talks to Fearne about the transition she's made, how she celebrates her femininity, some questionable fashion statements, and what we can all learn about her journey. Triggers: suicide, mental health, #metoo. This episode also contains a transphobic word that some will find offensive (in order to discuss its offensiveness). Thanks to our sponsors Sweaty Betty - find out more about their amazing activewear, and get an exclusive special offer, when you visit sweatybetty.com/happyplace
