'Hollyoaks' tackle Gender Dysphoria

Postby snowdoggy » Fri Jul 02, 2010 3:08 pm

Hollyoaks producers are to tackle of one of only remaining taboos in soapland as a new member of the Costello clan will suffer from Gender Identity Disorder (GID).

Soaps newcomer Victoria Atkin, 23, will take on the role of Jasmine Costello, who arrives in the village having spent the summer at a camp in America. While Heidi's (Kim Tiddy) delighted to have her daughter back home, it quickly transpires that she is hiding a huge secret.

Soon after returning to the family fold, Jasmine's clandestine double life is revealed when her male alter ego Jason emerges as a prominent and overbearing part of her world.

GID - or Gender Dysphoria as it is also known - is when a person is born as one sex but has a desperate desire to be the other, dressing up and acting like the opposite sex in the hope that it will become reality.

Jasmine's journey will highlight the mental trauma, physical disgust and ongoing frustration of a boy trapped in a girl's body, as well as the effects that her condition has on those around her.

This is not a programme that I watch but may be of interest to others. I don't think that any of the soaps have had an ftm character before to my knowledge.

I used to catch the last half of Hollyoaks quite regularly when cooking and waiting for C4 news (too much routine :roll: ) - they seem to handle things quite sensitively and have a track record of dealing with difficult subjects. I worry a little for the actress as who knows where the story will go... :shock:
