It's Caroline's Birthday!

The Caroline I'm speaking of who is having a birthday today is British born trans woman Caroline Cossey

She broke ground as a fashion model, author, Bond Girl and Playboy magazine centerfold    She also fought for trans marriage rights in her native country winning in 1989 and losing on British government appeal in September 1990 her case in the European Court of Human Rights..

She was also one of the people who turned the light bulb on for me in the 70's.  Seeing her story in the news helped me begin to define and realize I was trans and it was possible to make something happen to rectify the situation.   

She's happily married these days and living on our side of The Pond and hope she has a blessed low stress birthday.
