Lisa grew up at a time when the term transgender was not available to her to help explain her sense of detachment between her sense of self and hr body. Born in Colombia in 1950, Lisa (a.k.a. Santiago) grew up in California and moved to Vancouver in the early 1970s to start a successful career asa graphic designer and photographer. After living the first forty eight years of life as Santiago, a married, a father, and devout Christian, she was diagnosed with gender dysphoria, a term that describes the challenges, and opportunities, that some have with sexual identity. But it would take almost ten more years to reconcile this diagnosis with her Christian faith before she could decide to transition. For someone who had been a husband and a father, it was the beginning an amazing new life. Having completed her medical and surgical transformation, Lisa shares the story of her journey as a trans woman and Christian; written with tenderness, humility, sensitivity and complete transparency. A must read for anyone who struggles to understand their own gender identity, or a friend's or loved one'sespecially when faith is central in their life. Transparently is an engaging story, told by a brave woman who made the call to accept what she knew she was, and had always been.
