Model Katherine Dalton is now Adrian after sex changeMay 21st, 2009 - 8:11 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 21 (IANS) Popular model Katherine Dalton underwent a surgery to change her sex and says it was the most fulfilling thing she had done.
With her sexy curves, perfect pout and long, blonde hair, gorgeous Dalton was in big demand as a model. But beneath her beauty lay a secret which had troubled her from an early age - she felt she was a man and found herself attracted to girls rather than guys.
“For years I was a man trapped in a woman’s body. And although I was a beautiful woman I felt ugly because I was not who I wanted to be. Now I feel complete and it is fantastic,” thesun.co.uk quote the 31-year-old as saying.
“Going through the op (surgery) to be a man was scary but it’s the most fulfilling thing I’ve done and I feel right for the first time in my life,” added Dalton.
Now Dalton has changed her first name Katherine to Adrian.
There was nothing in Dalton’s idyllic childhood which left clues to the incredible transformation which was to take place later.
“I was brought up in a big house and liked all the things little girls do - glitter, make-up and Barbies. I once asked Father Christmas for a tiara.”
Brooding thoughts about her sexuality began troubling Dalton deeply and in her 20s she turned to alcohol to erase them.
“I was drinking pints of cider, vodka, wine - anything,” said Dalton who works for an investment bank.
In December 2005, Dalton embarked on the first part of her journey to becoming a man. In 2007, surgeons performed a hysterectomy on her. But the biggest stage of her transformation was yet to come and six weeks ago she went from her west London home to Ghent, in Belgium, for the eight-hour phalloplasty - removal of skin from her arm and thigh to build a set of male genitals.
In a year Dalton will return to Belgium again for another surgery.
“”In a year I return to Belgium for an erectile implant, then my transformation will be complete,” said Dalton who is currently single but hopes to pursue relationships.
