Kim Petras: The world’s youngest transsexual
A 16-year-old German pop star, who has wanted to be a girl since she was two years old, had a sex-change procedure—becoming the world’s youngest transsexual!
Kim Petras, born Tim, is famous in Germany for having started hormone replacement therapy as part of her gender transition by the age of 12. In November, she completed Gender Reassignment Surgery.
The surgical procedure was approved after psychologists confirmed that Kim was undeniably– a girl trapped in a boy’s body.
“Kim is such a case – she always knew what she wanted,” Dr. Bernd Meyenburg said.
The costs of her operation were covered by health insurance as her condition was officially diagnosed as an illness.
Kim said: “I was asked if I feel like a woman now – but the truth is I have always felt like a woman – I just ended up in the wrong body.”
“I can enjoy swimming, and bikinis, go in the changing rooms without a problem, everything has changed because of this operation. I just can’t wait to put on my favorite bathing suit and go swimming like I’ve never done before.”
Last year Kim was signed to Joyce Records and released online her first single “Last Forever”.
“I am very proud of what she has achieved, how she has managed to get there and how she sticks to her dreams no matter how hard and painful they are to follow,” her father Lutz said.
