‘Bellies’ author Nicola Dinan: ‘Trans characters should have the right to be fallible too’

This week, we’re thrilled to speak with author Nicola Dinan about her debut novel, Bellies. It follows the relationship between young graduates Tom and Ming and how their connection fluctuates in the wake of Ming’s transition, and is being adapted for TV by the studio behind the Normal People adaptation. We chat with Nicola about the expectation that transgender characters should be overly virtuous, and how marginalised characters should have “the freedom to be pieces of s*** too.” Catch Love Lives on Independent TV and YouTube, as well as all major social and podcast platforms.
