The Sun glowingly describes the latest breakthrough development in human relationships in Britain’s Brave New Progressive Society.
Transgender Army officer Hannah Winterbourne has married actor Jake Graf â€” who used to be a woman.
Captain Hannah, 31, who spent her first few years in the Army as a man, wed Jake, 40, in London.
The delighted bride said on Monday night: â€œI never thought when I was younger this could happen to me. It was always a pipe dream.â€
The couple tied the knot with a romantic white wedding â€” saying: â€œWeâ€™re just like any other bride and groom.â€
Captain Hannah wed Jake in a ceremony that she described as â€œlike a Disney movieâ€.
Hannah who will now be Âliving with Jake in Army married quarters near her barracks, added: â€œTo me, Iâ€™m just another girl married to another guy. As you transition and meet someone new you kind of forget about your past.â€ …
Actor Jake, 40, said: â€œWeâ€™re just the same as everyone else, with our flaws and ups and downs â€” but a little bit different.â€
Hannah and Jake revealed they first got together because of a Sun front-page story in January 2015 telling of her courageous decision to become a woman while still on Army active service. …
But the fact that Jake was also transgender made things easier.
Hannah, who is in the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers, said: â€œI didnâ€™t have to explain myself. He knew how to deal with it. Iâ€™ve got a low voice but he understood. …
Now they are married, Hannah and Jake are eager to start a family.
She said: â€œWe want kids sooner rather than later. Iâ€™ve definitely got broody since turning 30. A lot of my friends have got kids now. Weâ€™ll go for surrogacy in the first instance and see how it goes.â€
Myself, I self-identify as a Scottish duke with a castle, 60,000-acres of grouse shooting, 6 miles of good salmon water, and a gun-room full of Purdeys and Bosses. When can I start transitioning?
