Laura Perry, Former Transgender Person Returned To Original Gender

Laura Perry lived for 8 years as a transgender man named Jake, taking opposite sex hormones and undergoing a double mastectomy. After experiencing a spiritual awakening, Laura transitioned back to being a woman. She returned to live with her parents and has now repaired their once troubled family relationship.

Laura turned away from the transgender lifestyle to follow Christ in 2016. Raised in a Christian home and in Christian school, she rejected God and followed her own path and lived as transgender for nearly a decade, finding the end of it empty and void of the contentment and self-fulfillment she expected. Through much heartbreak, she realized she could never be a man no matter how much her outward appearance changed. But when she was willing to obey God and turn away from the life she’d always dreamed of and leave it all behind, she found lasting freedom from the gender dysphoria that had plagued her for so long.

Laura has shared her story with various churches and groups and has appeared on radio programs and in various articles.
