Lulu’s Story of Legal Gender Recognition,
A Story of Resilience
I started my trans journey officially in 2017. Eight years prior to that I was still thinking where and how does one start to and if this is the step I really want to take. In this time, I was doing research on the process however I didn’t find the information helpful until I met a friend. This friend was in the process of transitioning, and they explained to me how to go about it. When I reflected on what was shared with me in comparison with what I found I realised how challenging it is to access gender affirming services.
