Presenter comes out live on-air as trans-masculine non-binary
Paris Munro revealed to his Gaydio Breakfast co-host Dave Cooper and listeners today that he is transmasculine non-binary.
It means Paris now uses any and all pronouns (he/she/they).
“You might have seen on my personal Instagram… but I’m coming out now on the radio for the very first time as transmasc non-binary.”
Opening up about his journey and what this means for him, Paris added “this is really exciting for me, I go by any and all pronouns. I’m currently taking testosterone and have done for three weeks as prescribed by my doctor. I’m very, very happy and feel free.”
Paris isn’t Gaydio’s first non-binary presenter, but is the first one on their breakfast show.
Paris said: “I may not be the first non-binary broadcaster, but I feel so overwhelmed with all the support that Gaydio and our listeners have given me. I feel like I can be finally who I am on the outside after 31 years. Thanks to Gaydio and the listener support, I can do this without having to leave that job that I love.”
