Gender Reassignment Surgery
Organized by: Mario Almaraz
My name is Tristan Morgan and I am transgender. My mother and father have been divorced for 10 years and I live with my father, but it all started from when i was a young child. I was around 7 when i started to realize I was different from the other brothers, while they wanted to play football and wrestle, I would stay inside and play with barbie dolls. I had a secret hiding place where I could play with dolls and play dress up all I wanted to. One day my father came home early and I had been putting on makeup when I heard the front door open,I ran to the restroom and shut the door. My dad opened the door and saw me trying to wash off my makeup. He looked at me with such hatered and disgust in his eyes and snapped. He grabbed me by the arm, dragged me to my room, threw me against the bed frame and locked the door behind him. I was terrified for my life, I could see fire in his eyes and then came the first punch and another, and then another, I begged him to stop but every time I did he would hit me harder. I screamed for someone, anyone to help, but no one came to my rescue. When he was done he threw me on the bed and left the room, I couldn't move, I couldnt breath, all i knew was pain. Why couldn't he understand that I was different, why didnt he see that I was unhappy as a boy. Why does he hate me. These beating went on till I finally had enough. I just wanted it to end, I wanted it to stop I tried to seek help, not for the beatings I had grown accustomed to, but for my gender issue In my head I know that i am a woman who was born in the wrong body I want to be happy in my own skin, I want to be the woman i know that I am please help me.
