This week, charity Age UK announced they are offering advice on gender change, to support the growing number of over-60s seeking the operation. This announcement has been applauded by 85-year-old gran Ruth Rose, who underwent gender reassignment surgery herself aged 81 - making her one of Britain’s oldest transgender people.
Born James, Ruth knew she wanted to be female since she was nine years old. Unable to live the life she yearned for, she married a woman and had three children. But, in the end, Ruth had to reveal her true self, and four years ago finally underwent the surgery she says made her achieve total acceptance as a female.
Ruth joins us with her story.
