I'm Not Les: A Transgender Story

  • Aired: 02/27/2012
  • 26:07
  • Rating: NR
For almost 70 years, Sherri hid herself from the world. Everyone knew her as Les, a welder, a husband and a father. She was a biological male, but her physical gender didn't match the way she felt about who she was. Like many people in this country living with Gender Identity disorder, she was ostracized, harassed, and abused throughout her life.
