18 min.DK/Short fiction

It’s the big day of Mathias' confirmation. The Danish tradition where young people say yes to being Christian and enter adulthood. Mathias is transgender and just wants a normal day, where his transition isn’t in focus. But his plan to fly under the radar, is soon spoiled by his overprotective mother, who has a very different idea to Mathias of what the perfect day looks like.
