This is an interview by Suzanne McAdo of Walt Heyer who was cross dressed by his grandmother as a child and developed feelings that he was a woman trapped in a man's body. He married and had 2 children and had a successful career. At the age of 42 he underwent gender reassignment surgery and lived as a woman in San Fransisco for 8 years.
Today he is living as a man and for 19 years is married to his 2nd wife.
Personally, I don't like the push to convert children to be the opposite sex.
