At first glance, everything about this adorable couple looks, well, adorably normal — just a couple of lucky teens in love. But beneath the surface, their relationship is anything but ordinary. Both Katie Hill and her boyfriend, Arin Andrews, are transgender. Eighteen-year-old Katie was known as Luke for the first 15 years of her life, the son of a Marine colonel. And Arin, 16, was born a girl called Emerald who won beauty contests and adored ballet. The pair met at a Tulsa trans support group and say they instantly bonded. Both kids say they always knew they were born in the wrong bodies, and an anonymous donor even paid for Katie’s $40,000 gender reassignment surgery. We’re rooting for you kids.
Good for them, I think it's pretty cool. I hope this gets tons of positive exposure in a way that feminine dudes can finally be accepted to change to what they always wanted to be, instead of turning into depressed emo kids.
