Norrie May received "Sexual Realignment Surgery" in 1989, but now feels that her identity does not fit the pre-programmed transsexual model. She finds herself preceived alternately as male, female, neither or both, and refers to herself as a "Spansexual". We asked her what she means by 'spansexual,' about her gender and about the work that she is doing on behalf of transpeople.
