Julie Clarke was born a boy in the 50s in central Scotland. From a very early age she knew she was different from other boys, but growing up in the 50s and 60s was not conducive to discussing feelings of gender difference and for many years Julie didn’t even know there was a medical term for her dilemma, she was transsexual.

Julie spent many years battling with her demons; as a man she lived a stereotypical life and became a firefighter, hoping that these acts would suppress her longing to become female, but to no avail. Finally, in 2004, Julie achieved her dream and after undergoing transgender surgery, she physically became a woman. This is the story of Julie Clarke’s journey to becoming the woman she is today, living happily on the Isle of Coll and working for Cal-Mac in the role she previously held as a man
