Nineteen-year-old Felix who is transitioning from female to male and Isobel, 22, who is transition from male to female, both appeared on the show, looking for love and not at all shy about whipping their kit off to find it.

Pimental says that the storyline came up very organically in the writers’ room and took a while to come to fruition. “We didn’t come in saying we would like to do a trans story.” team.
Recalls Rossum: “Introducing Trevor was the most exciting part of the episode.
