Transgender brother and sister swap sexes

A brother and sister have swapped genders after they came out to their parents as transgender just a month apart.

At just three years old, Aly McGarrity was a tomboy who enjoyed playing football with the boys, while older sibling Russie, then 5, preferred playing dress up with the girls.

For Russie, now known as Rai, the next few years were hard, her mother Beth told Good Housekeeping.
At high school, she was bullied by other students but refused to bow to pressure to conform and adopted an androgynous look.

Mrs McGarrity, from Connecticut, says she always knew her children were a little different.
But she, and husband Russ, became worried about Rai who slowly spiraled into depression.

While the family were concerned with Rai, unbeknownst to anyone, Aly was also struggling with gender.

Aly, now known as Gavin, had always been a bit of a tomboy but deep down he knew there was more to it.
After researching transgender on the internet, he realized that he had been born the wrong sex. He wanted to be a boy.

And it was Gavin who took the brave step to come out to his parents first. Just a few days before his 15th birthday, he broke the news to Rai that he was transgender. Then, they broke the news to their mom.

A month later, Rai confessed that she too was transgender and both siblings, after receiving counselling, have decided to go ahead with gender reassignment surgery.

Their parents said nothing had changed as far as how much they love their children.

Gavin, now 17, said that it had been his parents' unwavering support and unconditional support that had allowed him and Rai, now 20, to become the people they wanted to be.

Mrs McGarrity said: 'People ask me what I've lost, but I don't feel that I've lost anything. I have my son and daughter the way they should be'
