A case of serious regrets: MTFTM

This is a transcript of an interview with Alan Finch, an "Australian Story" from 2003, where he discusses his dissatisfaction with MTF transition and the genital surgery he obtained in his early 20s. He has now returned to a masculine gender role and hopes to have partial reconstruction surgery to approximate his former physical appearance.
