Congratulations are due to Channel 4 for last night’s documentary called “Mr Miss Pageant”, renamed from “Mr Miss World”. See here.
As has been said elsewhere, it would have been so easy to turn this into a freak show, so I was very pleased to see that it focussed on two very real people. Maybe they are very different to you (not so different to me) and you might see them as weird, but the program seemed to capture some humanity.
It was a real shame that I could not persuade D to watch it. In the two and a half years since she’s known about my alter ego ‘Penny’, she’s really not made any progress towards accepting that part of me. I cannot force her to be who she is not, especially as she allows me to be who I am.
