A couple who stayed together after they both underwent gender reassignment surgeries are the subjects of a new BBC documentary.

Arin Andrews (19) and Katie Hill (21) met in 2012 while they each gender transitioning and fell in love.

The pair helped each other through the difficult time in their lives and documented the experience through a series of videos.

The couple have since split up but remain close friends.

Katie said: “I don’t think anyone unless they know our story would come to the conclusion that we’re a trans man and a trans woman dating.

“They would just see us as a boy and a girl dating.”

Arin said: “I’ve always loved women and liked women as a female because I’ve always deep down known that I was straight male.”

The pair will feature in a documentary ‘Young, Trans and Looking for Love’ on BBC 3 on Sunday evening.

The show also features other transgender teens from around the world who are seeking a partner and exploring the world of dating.
