Petr

 
As the Roma say, Peter is a "junction" - that is, he comes from a mixed background. His father is Czech and his mother is Roma.
He was born as a baby boy, but in the body of a girl. He soon began to feel that something was wrong, already at the age of four. Can you imagine the confusion of such a small child? Just try it, please…

… I'm a little girl. I see it. Everyone tells me I'm a beautiful princess! All the little girls play with prams and dolls, which they dress up all day, cook with them in tiny kitchens, go for walks… But I want a car! And a plane! Dolls are for girls! Well, yeah, but I'm a little girl…
Once, they had a carnival in kindergarten, and her mother decided that her little girl would go as the Little Red Riding Hood. Peter was desperate, he knew he didn't want to go like a little girl… Well, but parents at this age take all children's reactions as a sort of an innocent game…
"Look what a rebellious little girl we have! She would prefer to go as a cop or Batman, “ they laugh and hide scissors from their girl so that she doesn't cut her long hair…

Year after year passed by and Peter's frustration grew even bigger. Puberty was a particularly difficult time for him. In desperation, he decided to try and act like a girl, but it just didn't work out. No wonder. (S)he just wasn't her…
You can't be a heavyweight boxer when you feel like a ballet dancer… It doesn't matter if you have 190 cm, 100 kilograms, muscles like Hercules and can hit like a bull. You’re just not a boxer…

Although Peter's prenatal development led to the fact that he was born as a little girl, no one had any idea yet that there was a boy in his brain, but in a girl’s body. And that's transsexuality.
But Peter's parents wanted him to be happy, so they tried to simplify his life, at least by letting him express himself in ways he wanted. However, what parents have to go through is a different story.

"It's all really difficult and challenging for the mother." Peter's mother expressed her feelings.
Over time, Peter came to the only possible decision – to change his gender.
You can be sure that you will not make such a decision out of a whim. You can expect a two-year  long martyrdom, during which a team of experts, a psychiatrist, a sexologist, a psychologist, an endocrinologist, a gynaecologist or a urologist, will work for you, and on you. After this time, an expert committee from the Ministry of Health must approve the surgical procedures leading to the gender change. Hormonal substitution and monitoring of patients after surgery will continue their entire life…

Petr also had to go through all this. He is now a happily married, educated and satisfied middle-aged man.

When he started the official FtM (literally “female to male”) transformation, his psychologist advised him to keep a diary. So he started a blog and over time he became quite known. He also found friends like him who were in the same period of their lives, they helped each other and  shared their experiences.

Even today, seven years after the final surgery, Petr still helps, although not officially, advising young people with the same issue. He is a positive role model and an example to those who are at the beginning of their journey and do not see the light at the end of the tunnel.

More and more people are deciding for FtM transformation as a solution for their sore souls and aching hearts. According to official statistics from the Ministry of Health, in 2012, 4 women decided to change from women to men (physiologically only), in 2019, it was already 95 women.
Petr also contributes to this increase, as he was always ready to help and support…
"I know how they feel and how difficult it is, so if someone asks me for help, I don't hesitate," said Petr.
