This is Jade Cox (left), a Trans female artist, writer and voice actor from the circle of hell where lawyers emerge. Officially beginning her transition in July of 2019, as of this taping she is almost exactly 2 years into her transition, and has become heavily engrained in the LGBT+ community, along with many other communities accepting of LGBT+ people, such as the art community, the voice acting community and many fan bases. She has been writing and voice acting for 11 years and illustrating for 7 years, most of which is documented on her Twitter, Deviant Art and Instagram. She has also dipped in and out of streaming throughout her life, starting on YouTube and then porting over to Twitch.
During her school life (pre-transition), Jade was always very open about herself to those around her, from everything like her autism, her interests and even her sexuality. However, it wasn’t until the very end of her school life that the penny dropped and she had the realisation that she was transgender, which she acted upon once leaving school and moving onto college, where she would go on to meet many more like minded people within the LGBT+ community. Jade has had a relatively strife free life, even once transitioned, which is a fact she is well aware of and utilised to try and help those less fortunate than her, particularly those within the LGBT+ community, deal with the stresses they have to deal with on an regular, and sometimes daily, basis.

This is Michalina Jurek (right), better known to the public as Minia. They are a Polish artist and animator with special interests such as magic, storytelling, and cartoons. They have been drawing digitally for over 5 years and animating for 3. With all that experience they came to England in 2019 and have been pursuing their passions ever since. Their art journey can be found documented on their YouTube channel and DeviantArt account.
They came out as nonbinary in late February this year, but they have been a part of the LGBT+ community for far longer. Since middle school they knew that they weren’t straight, though it was hard to determine which exact label fits them most as they hadn’t got the chance to explore and learn much about the LGBT+ community. Only once they moved counters, they were able to fully enjoy the rainbow. They are now open about their identity even though it can sometimes be a challenge back across the border, due to differences in language and viewpoints.
