My name is Brandi, and I am a new and very proud member of Pride of Irons. About a year ago I finally started to live as my true self and transitioned from Male to Female. I have been a West Ham supporter since the mid 90’s and of course my love for football and West Ham didn’t change. After doing a search to find any other supporters in my situation I found the POI group, and quickly joined. I have now met several members of the group and it is fantastic finding a group of people who just accept you for who you are without judgement, I have made some friends for life!

Being a member of the group definitely eased my anxiety for when I recently attended my first match as my true self. I feel very lucky to have found the Pride of Irons.
