Georgie Stone is a transgender girl from Melbourne, Victoria. She is an advocate for trans and gender diverse children and youth as well as a full time student currently completing her VCE studies. Georgie’s visibility along with sharing her experiences and insights has shone a light on the challenges facing gender diverse children and adolescents in Australia. She has been able to articulate the child’s perspective in a way that has created understanding and acceptance.
Georgie and her twin brother Harry were born in 2000, but from a very young age Georgie expressed clearly that she was a girl.
She began seeing specialist doctors at the RCH, Melbourne at the age of seven after she became very distressed about her gender identity. By the age of eight she began a social transition. Georgie experienced bullying and an unsupportive school environment. She was placed in unsafe situations where her parents were unable to protect her, so they decided to move to a more supportive school. Georgie was then able to use the female only spaces and wear the girl’s uniform with support from her school.
