Meet Stefonknee (pronounced ‘Stephanie’) Wolschtt, 46 years old, he had been married for 23 years already when she realized that she was transgender. She’s now living her life with an adoptive family, and says she does not “want to be an adult right now”.

“I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child, To me, ‘stop being trans’ isn’t something I could do, It would be like telling me to stop being 6ft 2 or leave.” - Stefonknee Wolschtt

Ms Wolschtt shared that her wife could not accept her as a transgender woman. She was even puit in a situation wherein he needs to decide to either “stop being trans or leave”.
