Laurence Michael Dillon

Dillon was a British physician and the first transgender man to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

Born as Laura Maud Dillon, he was assigned female at birth.

#LGBTVoices #PrideMonth Laurence was always more comfortable in men’s clothing and knew that he was not a woman.

In 1939, Dillon experimented with testosterone pills. A pioneering plastic surgeon performed a double mastectomy on Dillon and gave him a note to change his birth certificate to male.
