Lesbian Gets Sex Change to Become a Gay Man

Katherine Dalton was a successful model. She was also a lesbian. However, she felt trapped and unhappy, so after years of therapy Katherine came to the realization she is a gay man.

So, Katherine underwent gender reassignment surgery to become Adrian - the person she feels she is.

“For years I was a man trapped in a woman’s body. And although I was a beautiful woman I felt ugly because I was not who I wanted to be. Now I feel complete and it is fantastic," she told the Sun. “Going through the op to be a man was scary but it’s the most fulfilling thing I’ve done and I feel right for the first time in my life.”

Incredibly, despite having romances with women when he was a woman, Adrian is now drawn to men.

“I used to be attracted to women in my teens but I now consider myself gay. I don’t know what the future holds. I’d like to travel and live in Australia but for now I’m just happy being me," he says.

In December 2005 Adrian embarked on the first part of his journey to becoming a man.

He had an operation to remove his 32C breasts and began self-injecting testosterone weekly — a process which will continue for the rest of his life.

“The first thing I noticed was my voice breaking — it slowly became huskier. Then my face started to subtly change. It got wider and all the fat drained out of it," he says. “I got more body hair and eventually facial hair, which I love. Shaving my face is far less hassle than shaving my legs every day.”

In 2007 surgeons performed a hysterectomy on Adrian.

But the biggest stage of his transformation was yet to come and six weeks ago he went from his west London home to Ghent, in Belgium, for the eight-hour phalloplasty — removal of skin from his arm and thigh to build a set of male genitals.

“It’s brilliant. I hated that part of my body before and was embarrassed by it but now I feel complete," he says. “In a year I return to Belgium for an erectile implant, then my transformation will be complete.”

This may sound cynical but how is this news or unusual in this day and age? People are undergoing gender reassignment all the time now.

P.S. He/she looks scary.
