On the 6th of September Hamish Coleman-Ross and I hosted the NewstalkZB show “The Nutters Club.”
Yasimi Quaife’s story is one of tragedy, pain and suffering; surviving childhood sexual abuse, and living as a transgendered woman.The truth of Yasimi’s life was hidden on the pages of her diaries, which her sister, Mig found the day after her funeral. “If something happens to me and I don’t make it, I want these diaries published to help others,” the 23-year-old wrote inside.
In honour of her memory, Mig published these writings into a book, “This life: The diaries of Yasimi Quaife”. She shares her sisters story to give hope to others who might be going through what she did, with Hamish Coleman-Ross and psychotherapist Kyle MacDonald.
