First sex-swap mayor to be sworn in – and the mayoress used to be a man too! –

A man who had a sex swap is set to become the UK’s first transgender mayor – and his mayoress has had a sex change too.

Liberal Democrat Jenny Bailey, 45, who underwent a sex change operation when she was in her 30s, is likely to be sworn in as the civic leader of Cambridge City Council at a ceremony tomorrow.

Her partner, Jennifer Liddle, 49, who also underwent a sex swap and is a former councillor, will be mayoress.

They are believed to be the world’s first transgender Mayor and Mayoress.

Ms Bailey, who was once married and fathered two children, now aged 20 and 18, has served on Cambridge City Council with her partner.
