So long story short I grew up being friends with what I considered a brother for years and years and years. His name was Kev, as teenagers we hung out all the time, went on random adventures, got into trouble, typical best buddies, who were always there for each other. Then somewhere out of the mist when we were in out mid 20's he came out of the closet. This shocked me of course, I knew the guy for 10 years at the time, had no idea (I am straight btw). I was able to shrug my shoulders and support his new life style, it happens right? He eventually got married a few years later to a guy a few years older then him, I was happy for him, after he was sleeping around with who knows how many guys he finally found one he thought he could settle down with and start a family. I was his best man at his wedding and stood right next to him as he wed the man of his life. But then something last year surprised me, I found out he was taking estrogen pills. I never actually confronted him about them, I just saw them sitting on the table one day. Half a year later he's now legally changed his name to Sarah and is wearing fake boobs and girls clothes, and on facebook now refers to himself as female. Is my long friend Kev gone forever? Has this woman consumed him? His husband has now just broken up with him because he wanted to marry a man, not a woman. I feel Kev has died and my best friend gone forever. I actually haven't talked to him since after he started taking estrogen pills. I guess it bothers me he's done this to himself, and I really feel bad for his husband who really thought he was gonna be happy with Kev.
