17-year-old Arin Andrews was originally a daughter, and Katie Hill was a 19-year-old man.They met on a community gathering in Oklahoma for some time, and now they are among the best friends of each other.Let's listen to their most sincere life.(Also, listen to their story: I want to marry "She" )
Katie: I am Katie Kill, I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was the oldest son in the family, and my father was a Navy colonel.Ever since I was born, I've been treating me as a girl in the boy's body, and I hate my body, and I don't even think it's "my own body."
Until I was 16, I changed my name to Katie and legally changed my gender to women.I made up my mind to change, and I formally underwent surgery in high school.Even now, it's a very difficult and painful moment that I don't want to think about, and when I go into school, people laugh at me, anger me, bully me, spit on me, and nobody agrees with me, they look at me, as if I shouldn't exist in the world.After that, I hid myself at home, because I didn't dare go to school.
During that time, I was wondering if I was cursed?Every day, I'm living in my negative emotions.Until one day, I realized that it was never a curse, it was a blessing, and that experience made me a stronger, independent, beautiful individual who told me that I had no reason to be afraid, and what I was doing was to let more people know me, understand why I needed denaturing, and I looked at the people around me with the same kind of gentiful thinking.
Then I had the courage to go back to high school, because I didn't want to be treated like a "freak" or "victim."I explained to my classmate why I wanted to change, why I had this kind of demand, and I even shared the process of making women Hurmon.At first, everyone was able to share a cold eye like this, because they didn't think that "denaturing" was a topic worth discussing.In fact, people's fears often come from the unknown, when I was honest, when they weren't so scared, my days were quiet, and many people who used to bully me became my friends, and some of them shared with me that they had the same feeling.
I'd like to say I love what I am today, and that's what I dreamed of being a real woman.
Arin: I am Arin Andrews, I was born in the face of a girl, but I think I am a boy.I met Katie in Toulsa's transgender group, and I was going through my sex change process, and I continued to hit the male Hermond, so that I could become what I like.
Before I decided to change my sexuality, I was perplexed by my sexuality. In the course of my growth, I tried to kill myself three times because I couldn't identify myself with my identity.Before I decided to change, I spent a whole year communicating with myself and doing a deep and deep study of sex, and I remember that day in my car, and I said, "Hey, Mom, do you know what Transgender does?""My mom didn't say a word, and I said," I think I'm a transgender person, and I want to be able to do a transsexual operation."No one in the car knows what I was talking about."(Sibling: demargots, reloading, and gender school education )
I remember when I was being bullied at school, and they even told me to leave school.
I've worked so hard to survive, to fit in, but now I want to change, and I want to look at my voice inside myself.When I was transgender, I recorded the process of my body change with a video recorder, and I loved to change that.
I ended up with the experience of hurting me, making me cry, crying, hiding, and helping me to be my own.And finally, I think I can be proud to say that I, now, is a man I want to be.
Arin and Katie have spoken of their own denial and confusion, the most unbearable course of life, perhaps once alone, perhaps unintellient, but the process of colliding with their own collisions and world collisions gives them a sense of beauty, which has become more a of strength.With this “ Brothers, Sists, Sons & Daughters ” Filming the plan, hoping to inspire more people to be true to yourself, don't be afraid, and do what you like best!

We also think about life, no matter who it is, whether it is male or female, it's probably not just about women, you can be different , more like everyone is different.Without a life, it would only live in other people's eyes and expectations, because we all deserve and deserve our best.When we start embracing ourselves, the world begins embracing us.
