Caroline 'Tula' Cossey was born a boy. Now she is a beautiful woman with a successful modeling career.

My Story is Tula's candid account fo her struggles: her troubled childhood in northern England, her dreams of becoming a woman, the operations that liberated her sexually, and the journey from chorus gurl to James Bond girl to top international model.

After she was twice exposed by the tabloid press, Tulas career plummeted and her marriage to a wealthy businessman was annulled. In the spring of 1989, she was forced to make a unique appeal to the European Commission of Human Rights: she was fighting for the legal validation of her marriage as a female, though her birth certificate labeled her a lale.

My Story is the tale of a woman's battle for the body she needed to survive, and a transsexual's struggle for the rights she deserved.
