Teen Transgender Couple: Boy Was A Girl And Girlfriend Was A Boy
TEENAGERS Arin Andrews and Katie Hill look like any loving young couple posing in their swimwear.
It is hard to believe that just two years ago he was a girl called Emerald and she was a boy called Luke.
Arin, 17, and Katie, 19, have both undergone surgery to change their gender.
Just over a year ago Katie, a university student, had gender reassignment surgery.
Last month Arin, who is still at school, had his breasts removed.
He says: “I hated my breasts, I always felt like they didn’t belong. Now I finally feel comfortable in my own body.
“Now when I’m out in a public pool or lifting weights, no one raises an eyebrow. They just think I’m a guy “I can wear a tank top, which I couldn’t before, and I can go swimming shirtless. I can just be a regular guy.
“And I’m so lucky to have my family and Katie to rely on.”
The couple met nearly two years ago at a support group for transgender teenagers. They bonded through their shared experiences.
