OAKHURST, CA, — Gary Sconce, a 56-year-old male teacher at Yosemite High School in California, will return to school as “she” after spring break. He has rejected every facet of his male identity over the last year and told NBC News, “I will not return as my male persona ever again.”
Instead, he would now like to be known to students and faculty as Karen Adell Scot and referred to as “she.”
The New York Daily News reports that Sconce wrote, “I covered the female inside with hyper-masculine behavior, trying to provide I was not the woman inside I actually was.”
Sconce has been a science and multi-media teacher at Yosemite for 24 years and is a husband, father and grandfather. Since he “came out,” his wife of 35 years has filed for divorce and his 31-year-old daughter has ended her relationship with him.
Yet Sconce justifies his decision, saying he has found “joy” in his new status as a woman. “Being transgender is not a choice,” he says.
He is taking drugs to block testosterone, is adding female hormones and hopes to have “gender-reassignment” surgery at some point in the future.
