Ambassador Alert: Alex!

by Bad Wear Day on January 19, 2020

For anyone following us on Instagram, you'll probably have noticed that we've recruited ourselves some ambassadors - well we thought it was time we all got to know them a little better. Let's get things started with the fabulous Alex :)


BWD: Who are ya and what's your vibe?

Alex: I’m Alex, I’m a 24 year old transgender man. I document my transition, most recently my first stage of phalloplasty (surgery to create a penis) on my Instagram. I’m very shy, but friendly. I’m pretty easy-going, creative and silly :p

BWD: What's your most random hobby/interest?

Alex: Oooh, tough question! I’m not sure if this counts but I’m the proud daddy of 13 ratties, 2 hammys and a shorkie pup! I love my babies and also run another Instagram to show them off 😂 @the_harker_horde. Otherwise, some of my other interests are musicals, astrophotography, dinosaurs, sharks, tattoos, good food and movies 🎥

BWD: What does the LGBTQA+ community mean to you?


Alex: The LGBTQA+ community makes me feel like I’m a part of something, I feel safe and happy to be authentically myself within the community. I love being a part of a community that is fighting for the future to be brighter and who celebrate differences in people.


BWD: Who is your favourite local performer?

Alex: I honestly don’t get out much so I don’t really have one 😂

BWD: If you could make one change in the world, what would it be?

Alex:I would reform education, make all schools more inclusive of LGBTQA+ people in sex education and in general, it can be a scary world as a young kid who knows they’re different and if we teach kids that’s it’s ok to be different when they’re young and open-minded then hopefully they’ll turn into open-minded adults who will carry on the cycle. I’d also have schools teach real life skills like tax, mortgages and managing money so that they’re prepared for life after education.

BWD: Bonus: What's your fave BWD design?

Alex:Difficult choice! I really love my “Hello I am Queer!” t shirt, so maybe that one but I really like the trans gamer design too.

BWD: Great choices and thanks so much for the little interview!
