Ian Harvie, the first female-to-male trans person to hit the comedy circuit, has no plans of dropping “dyke” from his litany of identity tags.
“I may not appear as a dyke to the world, but I definitely feel that that is part of my history, and I’m not giving up my history,” Harvie says.
But the “male” tag doesn’t work for him.
“I’m a man but I’m not necessarily male,” Harvie says.
For more on this and Harvie’s defence of his use of the word “tranny,” see the below video interview with Lucas Silveira.
