When you look at this couple, you do not notice anything strange at first. However, their story of love is unique, as both people are transgenders!
Her name is Jamie O’Herlihy. She is just 23, but in the past, she was a man! At six he realized that the female soul is trapped in his male body and in 2015 the man made an operation and had become a trans woman.
His name is Harry Matthews, and he used to be a woman! He has done a surgery to become a man. The couple met during the rehab sessions for transgender people. They both had to go through the social, physical and emotional adaptation. That’s when they met and fell in love with each other.
Jamie said: ‘It is like fate brought us together. We had both booked to do this week of workshops and activities for all different aspects of being transgender, but we got cold feet at the last minute.’
In Jamie’s family, she is not the only one. She had two more brothers, and one of them has become a girl, too. Jamie and Harry feel they are the perfect couple. Here is what they say:
‘It is very emotional going through this transition so when you’re both experiencing it you can form such strong emotional connections quite quickly so he’s already seen my ugly crying face and he thinks I’m beautiful anyway. It might seem like our relationship is going pretty quickly because we’ve only been together a few months, but it just feels so right.’
Harry has made an operation earlier and now he provides the support Jamie who needs to get used to her new condition. Since 14 Jamie has been gay, but now she is a woman.
The story of their love is highly controversial and unusual. Some people judge the couple and say that they would not last long together. But the two of them do not care much about what the people say.
