The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - INSIDE THIS WEEK - baz mcal­is­ter

It all started in this news­pa­per’s pages, when a Queens­land mum printed a most un­usual pub­lic no­tice about her 18-year-old’s gen­der tran­si­tion that was soon be­ing shared by thou­sands of peo­ple all around the world. That’s what I call one hell of a re­turn on an ad­ver­tis­ing spend. A year-and-a-half on, Yolanda Bogert has penned a tell-all mem­oir about the ex­pe­ri­ence of hav­ing the world’s me­dia turn their eyes to Jim­boomba, 35km south-west of Bris­bane, and about get­ting to know her new son, Kai – and Kai him­self has opened up about the lone­li­ness and de­pres­sion that led to his de­ci­sion.
