100% Julie is a project that continues my work with a group of elderly trans people from working class backgrounds in Hull. Julie is 64, lives alone, and was originally called Dave and had secretly been wearing women’s clothes since he was a boy. During the pandemic, I photographed Julie at her home. Julie was using these sessions as part of her concept of becoming “100% Female”. In this way, the project became a real collaboration. We shared a common background as working-class people from Hull and developed a friendship very quickly. Much of what we did was humorous although we were constantly pushing boundaries. Eventually, Julie became confident enough to dress in public in Blackpool.
