Paris Lees is a British journalist and a campaigner for transgender rights. She is a preeminent figure in the push for better media representation and treatment of trans people. Her eloquence and tireless activism is especially well-known in the blogosphere and she is active on YouTube.
Recently, however, her work on the new-wave monitoring group Trans Media Watch and META Magazine has elevated her to something of an authoritative status on trans issues, especially the controversial topic of transgender youth. She has blogged for the BBC and appeared as a guest on the BBC Breakfast programme during its 2012 coverage of the James family media clusterfuck.
