Biography and Wiki
Many people are unaware that the lovely Stephanie was born as a boy, Simon Neil Hirst. She was a man. Hirst knew from a young age that she had the soul of a woman despite having the body of a man. She used to dress up in her mother’s clothes.
She even told her mother about her sexuality when she was 16 years old. Her mother was upbeat about it. However, due to a lack of internet access and knowledge about transgender people, Stephanie convinced herself that it was simply a case of cross-dressing. However, when she was 21, she bought a computer and began researching transexuals because she couldn’t live with the guilt of faking her identity forever.
She was so stressed that she considered suicide. But, after letting go of the negativity, she mustered the courage to come out as gay on October 11, 2014. She gushed on BBC Radio Five Live about her thoughts on transitioning.
She then took a brief break from the radio show to undergo the transformation. She returned as a woman and resumed her work for the BBC after four years of consent.
