          Woman Describes How Her Life Changed Once She ‘Accepted Herself’ As Transgender


          April 4, 2017

          “Making the decision to accept myself as transgender is the biggest decision I’ve ever made in my life. It’s just something that I felt,” says Hope, who was born as a male named Chance. “My transition started by dressing the way I felt comfortable, and that happened to be as a woman. And for the first time, I felt beautiful.”

          Hope says she now identifies as a straight female who dates straight men who want to date straight women.

          “I chose the name Hope because it was a Chance in my past and it was a Hope for my future. It’s a hope for everything in my future,” she says.
