After making a hospital visit to treat a kidney stone, a man in Colorado was given some unexpected news.
Five years ago, Steve Crecelius, a photographer based in Denver, was told that he “had both male genitalia and internal female sex organs” after he was admitted to the emergency room.
Crecelius, who is married to a woman and has six children, admitted that he always felt “a little different all his life”, as he developed feminine feelings, and was thus not too surprised with the revelation. However, now, he says he is supported by his family and goes by the name Stevie, as he has made the transition into living as a woman. He has been with his wife for 25 years.
As an intersex individual, Crecelius aspires to become a spokesperson for those born intersex as well as same-sex couples in the future.
