“It is easier to change a body than a mind” – Roberta Cowell

Roberta Cowell was legally Britain’s first transgender woman, undergoing surgery in the 1950s. Before this she had been a record breaking race driver, a spitfire pilot and a prisoner of war. She lived her life in the fast lane with courage and conviction.
