Anne Hodson was born and raised in Minneapolis. In this oral history, she shares her experiences negotiating her gender identity from an early age, eventually digging in to explore her trans identity in her 40s. Hodson reflects on the interconnected nature of gender and sexuality, remarking on how her attraction to women confused her before she transitioned: she could not imagine being trans and a lesbian. She also comments on current trans politics, her unique relationship with her wife of 40 years and friendships after transition.
