The first gender reassignment surgery occurred in 1921. Nonetheless, for most people this remains a little-understood and controversial topic. It is also rare enough for most people not to have ever met a gender reassignment subject.

Natasha (not her real name) came into the studio to talk to me about her motivations, experience and reflections on why she chose to become a woman, how the process changed her and what she has learned.

Natasha's insights into what it means to belong to a gender, her commitment to the change she made, her struggle to deal with personal cost she paid: all of these will change your perspective. I left this interview realizing that courage is not always where we expect, and that our perceptions of identity are more complex than we realize.

This podcast is of an adult nature.
