In a world where he’s long felt invisible, Aydin Kennedy reflects on the man he’s become, and the female identity he left behind

Aydin Kennedy is a 34-year-old social worker and student who lives in Chico, where he likes to ride his bike, play with his dogs Rylee and Olivia, root for Stanford women’s basketball, lift weights and mow the lawn. His wife, Christia Currie-Kennedy, likes that he’s courageous, funny and cute. The two hope to start a family soon.
