April Ashley’s Odyssey is the biography of someone born in the wrong body. Born at a time when to voice such a thing was taboo. This is the story of the change from George to April. April became a top model but when her sex change became public knowledge in 1961 it dramatically affected her career. She moved in high flying circles and the book is full of famous names . In 2012 April Ashley was awarded the MBE for her services to transgender equality and will be 82 next birthday.
