Paul, a computer programmer who is currently unemployed, is 38 years old and in the process of “detransitioning,” undoing steps towards the sex change he began a decade ago.
Taylor is a student who began transitioning at the age of 23. It started simply.
They have powerful stories to tell that are worth hearing.

Moses in Genesis said “ He created them male and female.” (Genesis 1:27)
Jesus said “In the original creation, God made male and female to be together.”(Mark 10:5-9)
