This is a true story. How do I know? Because it is my story and it is my life. My name is Angela Brewer and I was born in 2010. That does not make me ten years old but it is the time when I started being myself. I was born in 1967 in a boy’s body. I struggled with my identity for many years, as my previous self Andy changed into Angie before my eyes. Now I am fifty-three years old and officially a woman.
In 2010, I started on the pathway to gender reassignment which is a long process resulting in me starting my hormone therapy in 2016. I started writing a diary of my journey which I am turning into this book covering my life and a long journey to becoming my true self. I have been inundated with support from a society that I thought would turn its back. I want people to follow my journey to surgery and share it with me and I will hopefully answer a few questions along the way.
My previous life is important as it shaped me into the woman that I am today but the person who lived that life has gone. I am now Angie through and through. Imagine as you read this book sitting with me having a coffee whilst we chat and I’m telling you about my life.
