    Well it all started at a young age however I

    only recently realised it after a number of events and conversations with someone. At a young age I have brief memories of 'borrowing' my sisters knickers and putting them on. I cannot claim I know why I did it at the time and I only did this once or twice. I also wanted to...

    I used to be transgender

    when I was in my teens. Some years ago, I started going through surgeries and procedures, including gender reassignment, to become a girl. And ever since, I feel more alive. ♥
