Paris Lees is a British journalist and kicks considerable arse as 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,[1] and she is active on YouTube.[2]

As of 2012 her work with UK media monitoring group Trans Media Watch[3] and META Magazine[4] has elevated her to something of an authoritative status on trans issues, especially the controversial topic of transgender youth. She has blogged[5] for the BBC and appeared as a guest on the BBC Breakfast programme during its 2012 coverage of the James family media clusterfuck.[6]
