I was born and grew up with a sexual contradiction suffering jokes, insults and humiliation. My family was ashamed of my feminity, but it’s not my fault that I was born like this. Tired of constant bullying I left my home. I studied and fought. I live my life, and I’m happy. Maybe one day I’ll be understood. But now I’m grateful to Saint Sebastian for this surgery that changed my life.
