Fox and Owl are writers, film makers and campaigners for trans equality. Together they run the film project My Genderation, which celebrate trans lives and trans experiences.
My Generation was started in 2011 by Fox and Lewis Hancox after taking part in the mainstream documentary series My Transsexual Summer on Channel 4. Following on from the series, Fox felt there was a real lack of authentic representation of trans people in film, and set out to capture stories about the people around them. Now 7 years on, My Genderation has over 100 short films, some having shown on the BBC and Channel 4, as well as being screened all around the world at film festivals.
Fox and Owl sit on the advisory board of the project All About Trans (AAT). AAT is a project ran by On Road Media, and focuses on increasing positive representation of trans people in the media, and holds interaction with most major media platforms in the UK to open up a dialogue on how to create respectful and evidence based media representation of trans people.
Fox has been an active advocate for trans rights for many years, and in 2013 they were one of the founders of Trans Pride Brighton, one of the largest trans pride events in the world. They have appeared on television and radio, including on Good Morning Britain with Owl, Victoria Derbyshire, Arte Europa, BBC and LBC radio.
Fox is also the co-author and illustrator for Are You a Boy or Are You a Girl?, and co-authored and illustrated the Trans Teen Survival Guide with Owl. Fox is also a screenprinter, and has done events at the Tate Modern and the V&A Museum, joining together the art of screenprinting and gender. In 2017 they received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Brighton for their continued advocacy and contribution to the arts and trans equality.
