Triple Trans: One Woman’s Journey to Freedom


Triple Trans: One Woman’s Journey to Freedom

Rose Barkhimer

For me, Triple Trans means:

Transgender, the knowledge that one has been born with the incorrect physical body,

Transverse myelitis, a neurological affliction that was a catalyst in my decision to change gender and,

Transition, the process of change.

It is my hope that Triple Trans finds its way to at least one individual who is wrestling with the conundrum that is gender dysphoria and that my story helps them to understand their own journey. I also hope that my story will explain to the general public the experiences of one transgender individual and demonstrate that, despite our differences, we are all human beings struggling with life’s journey.
