A FORMER Territorial Army soldier from Sheffield spoke this week about his decision to become a woman with sex reassignment surgery.

Already father-of-two Kevin Jackson, aged 54, of Westfield, dresses in women’s clothing, wears a blonde wig and has changed his name by deed poll to Kristeen Anne Chealsy.

The ex-security-officer said: “I know the operations to make me a woman will be painful but it will be worth it – I will be having a facelift, breast implants and the final operation. I’ve thought about this all my life. I was a man for decades, but this is something I have always had inside me.

“Luckily my side of the family are backing me up – it means a lot to have that support.

Kristeen has seen a psychiatrist, and has been referred to the Porterbrook Clinic in Nether Edge.

Prof Kevan Wylie, trust consultant in sexual medicine, said: “We have seen a change across society in the last 15 years. Society has become much more understanding of trans-gender issues.”
