A moving new video 'In My Shoes' allows five transgender young people to tell us what it's like to be them: the awesome times, the challenges and how they've gotten through them.

An initiative of the Transgender Anti-Violence Project at The Gender Centre Inc., NSW, the docimentary has been produced by Tahlia Trijbetz, the Transgender Anti-Violence Project (TAVP) Officer.

Co-directed by Walkley Award winning journalist, Monique Schafter (Hungry Beast, 7.30 ABC TV) and award winning director/cinematographer, Mat Govoni, 'In My Shoes' features the original rap 'Spring' by transgender artist, Harri Harding.

"We hope that this film will serve as a resource for the wider community to better understand the issues facing young transgender and gender diverse people," the production team said in a statement.

"We also hope that it encourages transgender and gender diverse people of all ages to come forward and access support if they need it."
