Growing up, he had unusual sexual desires and fantasies. He describes his first sexual experience at the age of seven when he tied himself up in his pyjamas. From an early age he liked to dress in women's clothes and in his teens realized that he was a transvestite. At the age of 15 he moved in with his father's family at Chelmsford, where he began to go out dressed as a woman.
The Disguise exhibition was designed and created by the Creative Consultants at the Manchester Art Gallery. I was part of this team. We attended and held workshops, chose artworks and chose the colour scheme for the event. Artworks such as Cindy Sherman, Leigh Bowery, Nikki.S.Lee and Grayson Perry were on display.
