"First Day" is an Australian drama television series that premiered on ABC Me on March 30, 2020. The series is written and directed by Julie Kalceff and stars Evie Macdonald as twelve-year-old transgender girl Hannah Bradford, as she adjusts to high school at the start of a new year. She must navigate the social and personal issues of her early teenage years, while also dealing with the pressures of her gender identity, which is largely private at the beginning of the series.
The series has been praised for its realistic and sensitive portrayal of a transgender character, and for its handling of complex issues such as family relationships, friendships, and bullying.
"First Day" is an important addition to the growing body of representation for LGBTQIA+ youth, and provides a much-needed perspective on the challenges faced by young transgender people. The series has won numerous awards, including a GLAAD Media Award and an International Emmy Kids Award. In addition to increasing visibility for transgender children, the series has also been praised for its representation of diversity more generally.
Both "First Day" and "Euphoria" feature transgender characters who must navigate the challenges of early teenage years. However, while "First Day" is largely positive in its portrayal of transgender youth, "Euphoria" is much more dark and complex. Ultimately, both series offer important perspectives on the transgender experience.
