Who Am I?

When Audrey's story hit the news, it got the country in a frenzy. She was in all news stations sharing the story and shedding light on a population that most people did not know existed ... until her petition to the government to changed her name in her documents was highlighted. In a very conservative society the very thought or idea of a Transgender individual is alarming, confusing, to some disgusting and to the affected family can cause panic. For many it is hard to come to terms with why a man would want to become a woman or vice versa. She describes herself as a male to female transsexual; a woman trapped in a man's body.  Audrey shares a distressful, heart rending story of discrimination and repeated humiliation. Hers has been a lonely battle to break the silence and confront the reality of the existence of Transgender persons in the country and beyond.
