A transgender woman who was rejected by her Facebook love interest as a man, says they are now a couple and in love following her transition.
Erin Anderson, 22, knew she was born in the wrong body from the age of 3, when she would put on her mum’s makeup and draw herself as a girl.
She was still living as a man called Aaron when she first approached 28-year-old Jared Norris on social media, believing he was “cute”. At the time, Jared kindly rejected her.
But two years later, after Erin had “come out as trans and a woman”, he liked one of her pictures on Instagram and they began dating.
Today, they are a couple – with Jared saying he loves the fact that his “beautiful” Marilyn Monroe lookalike girlfriend is “willing to be herself”.
