Man documents sex change transformation

A 25-year-old man documented in photos his incredible year-long journey, physically changing from being a man to a woman.

Relying on hormones, the change was gradual and subtle initially.

However, the change became more drastic after four months.

The whole process took a year, in which the 25-year-old took regular photos of his 'progress'.

It is not clear exactly how this man carried out his transition, but some methods used for sex change include injections of feminising hormones, breast enlargement surgery, facial surgery, laser hair removal and genital reassignment surgical procedure.

Transgender people do not identify with the gender that they were born with. Some have described being transgender as having the body of one gender, but the brain of another. Such people feel that they have been 'born into the wrong body'.
