Transgender Teen: How People Accepted My Transition

Chatting to LifeStlye YOU, Alfie, star of our documentary Born in the Wrong Body: Girls to Men, speaks candidly about how his life has changed since publicly documenting his transition.

Born Ana, Alfie began his transition in the last year of high school when he made the life-changing decision to start taking testosterone.

Growing up as a tomboy, Alfie says he spent two years researching transgender female to males on the internet before making his decision.

"It's hard going through a transition, but it’s not only the people going through the transition that feel how hard it is, it’s the families and the siblings and the friends," Alfie says.

"I had a friend who never used to understand my transition she just didn't, she didn't get it and now over the last sort of year or so she really does get it because its about the understanding."

Being fully supported by his family, Alfie now lives as a male and says he hopes that the documentary helps other people.

"I really hope that more people now accept the transition because they understand it better, and that's really what my aim was."

Check out Alfie and his thoughts on life after the documentary in the video above.

Born in the Wrong Body: Girls to Men airs tonight at 8:30pm on LifeStyle YOU.
