Transgender Model Cairo

In episode 1, we met Simon, who decided to live full-time as Jackie. Simon had been married to his wife, Julie, for 35 years.

However, it was Cairo who was the most talked about cast member on social media, having given up a career in modelling to take on a gender transition process.

Cairo has a Just Giving page online where he wrote:

Thank you so much for clicking on my page, If we haven’t met before; My name is Cairo, I am a transman from London. I have been transitioning from Female to Male (FTM) for the last three years with that I have passed some big milestones.

Where is Cairo Now?

Cairo shares on Instagram his journey in transitioning from female to male.

He took to Insta in February 2019 to share a video highlighting his appreciation for The Making of Me – a project that he’s been a part of for three years.

Cairo said:

Being part of the documentary was incredible.  You need time to see the growth and its done with respect, it’s humorous, it’s human.
