Next year will be Lisa Larson’s 60th birthday, but it will be the first time she’s true to herself. Larson started the transition process almost a year ago to the day, and though she’s never been happier, she worries society still won’t accept her as a woman.
“We have no control over this, if we had cancer, I’d have as much control over it, or my green eyes,” Larson explained.
Lisa Larson says she’s felt trapped in a man’s body since the age of 3, but surgery has been financially out of reach.
“For a vaginoplasty, breast implants, facial reconstruction, hormones, laser hair removal, for everything that needed to be done, my first quote was $70,000,” Larson added.
However, with the help of Obamacare, Larson says she is looking at paying $5,000 out of pocket for the surgery, but because the surgery wouldn’t be covered in South Carolina, Larson’s been speaking with surgeons in Georgia.
