img2_2417049aTalulah Eve Brown, 21, was born a boy named Aaron, but spent her childhood feeling “lonely and confused”.

She was diagnosed with gender dysmorphia in 2014 and has begun treatment to transition to a woman, even paying £800 to have her sperm frozen so she can have children that are biologically hers.

“Ideally, I want to be settled in a relationship but I’ve proved that I can do all this on my own so there’d be nothing stopping me bringing up a child on my own,” said Miss Brown.

“My mum brought me up on her own so I’m sure I’ll do just fine. I was born to be a strong, independent woman – and a mother.”

Talulah said she “always knew she was different”.

Throughout school, she struggled to make friends with boys.

“I just didn’t know how to interact with them,” she said. “I was being pushed into all these stereotypically male activities, like sport, but I was far more interested in playing with Barbie dolls and trying on my mum’s clothes.”

When she was 13, Talulah came out to her classmates as gay, and began to experiment with make-up. However, she still did not feel comfortable in her own skin.

It was not until 2006, when she stumbled upon a newspaper article about transgender Big Brother contestant Nadia Almada that she realised she also wanted to transition to become a female.

She said: “When I began college studying beauty therapy, I decided to live full-time as the proud woman I knew I was.”

In 2014, she attended the Nottingham clinic where she was officially diagnosed with gender dysmorphia.
