Brother and Sister Both Decide to Change Genders

A brother and sister have decided that they want to be the opposite sex.

Aly McGarrity was already a tomboy at three years old. Her older brother, Russie, now Rai, enjoyed playing dress up with the girls. In high school, Rai was bullied by other students and refused to give in by adopting an androgynous look.

Rai told her parents "I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not." Mrs. McGarrity, from Connecticut, says she always knew here children were different. She said that Rai told her "I did not choose this for myself. I wish there was a way that I could not be this way."

The family was concerned with Rai, but they did not know that Aly was also suffering similar types of struggles. Aly, now known as Gavin, always knew there was something more to her feelings than just being a tomboy.

Just a few days before his 15th birthday, Gavin told Rai that he was transgender. After that, they both broke the news to their parents.

Gavin told her "I know that I'm transgender. I've always wanted to be a boy. I never told you this, but when I was little, I would go to sleep and wish that I'd wake up a boy." Mrs. McGarrity added, "I have my son and daughter the way they should be."

Rai has already had facial surgery to appear more feminine, and Gavin will undergo surgery to remove his breasts.
