Transgender Brother And Sister Swap Sexes One Month Apart



A brother and sister have swapped genders after they came out to their parents as transgender just a month apart.

At just three years old, Aly McGarrity was a tomboy who enjoyed playing football with the boys, while older sibling Russie, then 5, preferred playing dress up with the girls.

For Russie, now known as Rai, the next few years were hard, her mother Beth told Good Housekeeping.
At high school, she was bullied by other students but refused to bow to pressure to conform and adopted an androgynous look.
‘I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not,’ she told her parents.
Mrs McGarrity, from Connecticut, says she always knew her children were a little different.
But she, and husband Russ, became worried about Rai who slowly spiraled into depression.

Mrs McGarrity said her school struggled to understand her struggle and even threatened to expel her after she ran into the girl’s toilets.

‘I did not choose this for myself,’ she had told her mom. ‘I wish there was a way that I could not be this way.’
While the family were concerned with Rai, unbeknownst to anyone, Aly was also struggling with gender.
Aly, now known as Gavin, had always been a bit of a tomboy but deep down he knew there was more to it.
After researching transgender on the internet, he realized that he had been born the wrong sex. He wanted to be a boy.
And it was Gavin who took the brave step to come out to his parents first.
Just a few days before his 15th birthday, he broke the news to Rai that he was transgender. Then, they broke the news to their mom.

‘I’ve figured out what’s going on with me,’ Gavin told her. ‘I know that I’m transgender. I’ve always wanted to be a boy. I never told you this, but when I was little, I would go to sleep and wish that I’d wake up a boy.
