In the UK, a transgender officer married an actor who used to be a woman. This was reported by The Mirror.
The ceremony took place on Friday, March 23rd. Captain Hannah Winterbourne, 31, married actor Jake Graf, 40, in the town hall of London's Chelsea borough. The bride compared the wedding with a "Disney fairy tale" and admitted that before she could only dream of it.
Winterbourne is considered the most decorated transgender soldier in the British army. She began her service as a man, but at the age of 25, during the Afghan campaign, she decided to change her gender. “I did it because I am a woman. I had no choice. After all, you cannot choose what race you are, left-handed or right-handed, so it was the same for me,”she explained. Shortly thereafter, the officer met her husband-to-be, who had started hormone therapy for gender reassignment 11 years ago.
In September 2017, he proposed to Winterbourne on a boat trip after asking her father's permission.
The couple cannot imagine their future life without children and are planning to use the services of a surrogate mother. They hope that their example will help other transgender people find love.
