Ash and Matt are two of the children who regularly visit the gender clinic. Ash, who is eight years old and lives as a girl, has just moved to a new primary school, where no-one knows she was born a boy. She doesn't want to tell her new friends her secret in case she is bullied again. Matt doesn't want to talk about his gender, or the fact that he was born a girl - this is not helped by his diagnosis of autism and his problems with communicating. He just wants people to accept him.
