Ollie Davies

"Five or six years later, I realised that [transition] had been frankly a catastrophic mistake, a decision that I deeply regret."

Ollie is a Melbourne man who at the age of 26 came to believe he was a trans-woman. He was placed on cross sex hormones which have since made him infertile. He later detransitioned after coming to understand his identity issues were not helped by transition. Ollie believes – based on his personal experience – that the Australian Standards of Care are far too relaxed when diagnosing and treating gender dysphoria.
