Live Episode: Sex Education's Felix Mufti and Anthony Lexa

QueerAF Podcast: Season Five, Episode One – A live recording on the history-making TV representation In Sex Education. This episode was recorded in front of an audience of 200 people in London's Canary Wharf at our first ever Trans+ History Week community event.

In this episode: 

Netflix’s Sex Education’s Felix Mufti (Roman) and Anthony Lexa (Abbie) revealed how they were involved in writing the show’s trans-for-trans sex scene and why it was so important to see that on screen, and how Mufti changed their character from an ‘American jock’ to a scouse Trans masc character.

  • Guest host Kenny Ethan Jones, the first trans man in a period product ad campaign
  • Stars of Sex Educations's T4T storyline Anthony Lexa and Felix Mufti
  • A discussion about the power of on-screen representation, creating inclusive stories about Trans+ communities and what it was like to make that visibility for Sex Education.

The history lesson we never had

The episode was produced as part of the QueerAF launchpad initiative Trans+ History Week. Season five of the podcast has been made by six trans+ creatives who have been paid, mentored, and supported by the not-for-profit publisher QueerAF to make a show.

Each creative has also been given equipment to make the show, which they can keep forever, as part of an initiative to help more Trans+ creatives break into and succeed in the audio industry. 

Make sure to subscribe for the whole season ahead. A new mini-documentary episode will be available on your feeds every Monday from now through Pride month.

Episode Credits: Hosted by Kenny Ethan Jones. Produced by Jamie Wareham. A QueerAF Production. With thanks to all of our guests valuable time.
