Caitlin and Amrou get into the messy business of bodies - tattoos, piercings, surgery, hormones, and somehow also octopus sex - with Trans Like Me author CN Lester.

3. THE LOOK

EHow can you dress to reflect your gender identity? Does a haircut and a pair of trousers make all the difference? Is eyeshadow off limits all of a sudden? Caitlin and Amrou are joined by fashion icon and Fruitcake Magazine founding editor Jamie Windust for a trawl through the charity shops of a London suburb, and to explore the tyrannies and freedoms of presenting yourself exactly as you like - from dresses to neckties, from tucking to binding.

2. WORDS

EHow do you find the words for your gender? How do you ask for different pronouns? Would it be easier in French? Caitlin and Amrou make a pilgrimage to the legendary gay & lesbian bookshop Gay’s The Word to get into the language of gender with linguist and London Queer Muslims founder Martin Hasani DiMaggio. Caitlin asks their best mate Stephen for the sorely needed straight white male perspective on changing the pronouns you use for a friend.

1. REALISING

EWhat do you do when you realise you’re non-binary? How do you come out to yourself? How do you find people like you? Caitlin Benedict is coming out. But before they begin, they need to really understand what it’s like to live as non-binary: to exist as neither completely male nor completely female in a world usually confined to two options. So Caitlin has enlisted the help of their friend and mentor Amrou, and together they set off for Brighton, and the Museum of Transology where curator EJ Scott shares his wisdom about life outside the gender binary, the incredible trans community in the UK, and how best to transport a pair of breasts. And Amrou takes Caitlin to meet their best friend, artist Victoria Sin. Presented by Caitlin Benedict & Amrou Al-Kadhi Produced by Caitlin Benedict, Arlie Adlington and Georgia Catt
