Julia still fighting a battle
Julia Ford seems to live a pretty unremarkable life.
From her bungalow in Botesdale she shops in Diss, goes out with her female friends, and collects records as a hobby.

But where an attack would have cowed many of us, and despite facing more medical treatment next year, Miss Ford is determined to speak up for those in the same position she was – young people who are coming to terms with feeling trapped in the wrong gender but without the support they need.

    Olá Ana
    Bem, para alterares o nome na tua identificação, terás de ver que leis regem o país onde te encontras, que não sei qual é. Mas no Brasil penso que essa parte está mais facilitada. No entanto, como estou em Portugal, só sei como proceder aqui, no estrangeiro não sei, as leis variam.
    Boa sorte...
