Teens Fall In Love After Both Surgically Change Genders
Two years ago, 17-year-old Arin Andrews was a girl named Emerald....and 19-year-old Katie Hill was a boy named Luke. The two Tulsa, Oklahoma teens, who met at a transgender workshop became very close to each other. And after Katie underwent gender reassignment surgery a year ago, Arin likewise decided to take the plunge and undergo the surgery as well, getting his breasts removed.
“I hated my breasts, I always felt like they didn't belong. Now I finally feel comfortable in my own body. Now when I’m out in a public pool or lifting weights, no one raises an eyebrow. They just think I’m a guy. I can wear a tank top, which I couldn't before, and I can go swimming shirtless. I can just be a regular guy. And I’m so lucky to have my family and Katie to rely on.”
“To me, Arin’s just my Arin. He’s always looked manly to me. But now he’s had the surgery he’s much more confident and comfortable with himself. Being transgender myself, I understand Arin better than anybody else — how good he feels and how complete he feels.”
They're now just your average teenage couple in love:
Yeah,love always finds a way. Shakespeare would have written this one up in a heartbeat.
