April 15, 2011 - PRLog -- The book 'Two Lives: a transsexual’s story of the fight for recognition' is a ground-breaking story. This the brave journey Kathy undertook to be true to herself and the many obstacles she faced along the way, particularly due to government bureaucracy and misunderstanding.

'Two Lives: A Transsexual’s story and the fight for recognition' is a heart-wrenching read. The author shares her painful, yet sometimes happy journey through a tormented life that many could not imagine. From early childhood and being born a boy called Frank, Kathy felt something was not right with her gender. As she matured her body shape and physical appearance leant towards female, but it was the turmoil inside her mind that caused her the greatest anxiety.

As a man she married and had a family and tried in vain to be ‘normal’ as society would say, while in private she dressed in her wife’s clothes. There would be another marriage and it was in this one that she came out and declared she would be changing her life to the female she always knew she had to be.

With sex re-assignment surgery Kathy emerged to bravely fight the long, difficult battle for recognition.  Kathy’s honesty and strength gives the reader a truly informative and insightful look into the subject of transsexuals and their struggle through Government and political departments and laws pertaining to their rights. There is a huge amount of research and documented data contained in this amazing story that will give knowledge and hopefully a better understanding of the transgender community.

Kathy says, “I finished my book at the end of 2008 and then left it to sit on the shelf. In 2010, I was taking part in the ‘Prejudice and Pride Exhibition’ in Brisbane as a history of the GLBTI communities.

“I mentioned that I had written a book and was asked if I had published. My answer was that I needed a ghost writer. A contact at the State Library introduced me to one, who said that I did not need one and then put me in touch with Zeus Publications.

“The rest as they say is history.

“I do hope that you read this book and draw your own conclusions. I have stated in the book at page nine the following.

“This book is based on my feelings, my problems, my issues and my research. It may not be what everyone who is transsexual has encountered because we are all different in our approach to this problem, as well as our individual metabolisms all being different. If people wish to question what I have written, it is their right to do so, but by the time they do, I may well be long gone from this life. I make no apologies for what follows as it is, as I said my account of how, this whole medical phenomena affected me personally.

“I hope that you enjoy the book.”

Love and Peace, Kathy
