Life Begins Where Fear Ends - My Story as a Transgender Man
with Michael Alroy

 

Come listen to Michael Alroy’s account of his touching and fascinating life story, and awaken the potential to fearlessly make changes to your life.


“Life begins where fear ends” was Michael’s motto when he made the bold decision to have a sex change operation at the age of 21. This was an irreversible decision that finally allowed him to be and look the way he felt. From Michelle Haziza he became Michael Alroy, a full-blown man.


Michael was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the age of 7, he immigrated to Israel with his mother and two siblings and was sent to an all-girls religious school. He struggled to adapt to the strictly religious environment of his school as he began to experience a conflict with his gender identity. His school life was fraught with conflict and feelings of duality and awkwardness.


Michael’s lecture promotes insight into life values, educates, and conveys a message of the importance of developing tolerance and recognition of "the other". He shows the complicated relationship between religion and being transgender.


His lecture is a story of translife, trials, successes, gender definition and tolerance.
