Football referee Sagi Berman convened a special press conference today (Tuesday) at which he officially reveals the gender adjustment process he has been going through in recent months.
The change begins first of all with the name - so from now on it is said, at his request: football referee Sapir Berman.
As you may recall, in recent months rumors about the gender adjustment that Berman is undergoing have begun to spread on social networks and messaging programs, and the move has been kept secret between her and the judges' union.
But with inspiring courage, Berman decided not to hide, to take the opportunity - and to reveal to Israel sports her amazing story.
"I want to say that I speak to myself in a female language, you can contact me any way you want. Feel free," Sapir began. "I want to thank my family for supporting and giving me a huge hug. To the chairman, Ronit Tirosh, and to the Football Association. "
"I am thankful to my friends in the profession, who let me be who I am. They address me on the audio system in female language. It is amazing and it is appreciative. Thank you all for the support and inclusion."
"I always saw myself as a woman," Berman added, "in the last few months before the exposure I was a little less who I am. So here I am today, sure, complete, knowing that there is very broad support behind me."
