For the past 5 years I have volunteered as a Youth Worker with a group of Transgender & Non-Binary youth aged 16 to 25 in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. It's often fun, sometimes it's challenging and other times it's downright heart-breaking to hear their stories. No matter what it's always inspiring to spend time in the company of young people who are bravely carving out their place in the world.
That's where this wee story sprung up from. I imagine how amazing it would be if a magic dragon was at hand to guide us through the most difficult times in our lives. PS. Never Ending Story's Lawyers don't come for me!!!!! ;o)
*I added a subtle nod to the trans flag in Maki's hoodie.
