A former trained soldier has swapped her Territorial Army beret for a veil and become Britain's first transgender Muslim woman.

Lucy Vallender used to be called Laurens and says she is finally 'true to herself' after a sex change three years ago.
The 28-year-old is now married to another Muslim man she met on an online dating site, but he did not know she was once a man when they wed.

She now wears a full veil outside her Swindon home to show the world she is married.
The former labourer said 'she used to love firing guns' and claims she drank regularly with the other squaddies as a TA private, but Lucy knew at 14 she wanted to become a woman.
'I tried to do macho things you know to stop how I was thinking, but it didn't work because I was trying to be someone I wasn't,' she said.

'I felt differently to others - I was attracted to men.

'But I suppressed my feelings and tried to live like most people my age.

'I'd go out clubbing with friends and drink a lot of alcohol.

'I had girlfriends too, but it would never get physical and always fizzled out after a couple of months.

'Joining the TA was my final attempt at trying to fit in to that kind of life but I couldn't handle it anymore and left after about a year.

'I felt like I was in the wrong body. To carry on living as a male was living a lie.'

Religious: Lucy ears a black veil, prays five times a day and never drinks and has also become the second wife of a Muslim man she met online

After quitting the TA the 28-year-old started dressing as a woman and had relationships with men.
She also grew her hair and had hormone therapy before her life-changing operation.

Lucy moved from her family home in Cirencester and plucked up the courage to see her doctor in about becoming a woman.Miss Vallender told her GP she was 'in the wrong body' and three years ago had her sex change.
'I was so nervous and at first I could hardly form the words, but I told him I wanted to be a woman and he said 'ok' - that was that,' she said.
She then went back to work as a Ministry of Defence kitchen porter.

Past: Lucy Vallender (L), as a young boy, with her brother Soren (R) - he says he knew from a young age that he wanted to be a woman


In another major life change, she then converted to Islam because it promoted peace last September.

Sweet: Lucy as baby Laurens, and she says her family took it hard when she said she wanted to be a woman


'I had thought about it for a while but it is such a taboo I thought,' she said.

'But I did it because it is a nice religion - so peaceful.

'I felt good and I had something to believe in.

'I felt happy and relieved at last - the happiest I've ever felt in my life.'
Her conversion to Islam followed last Autumn and then she married Murad at a small ceremony at his home in London.
'I love him, he's kind and soft spoken,' she said.

'I've seen him twice since the wedding . When I do we have sex.

'I didn't tell him I was transsexual but he must have suspected it as he he's seen my scars.'
But she has run into trouble with her local mosque in Swindon, Wiltshire, as they would not let her pray with the other women.
Miss Vallender says she has been victimised by worhippers, who she says have asked her personal, and banned her because she is a transexual, and she wants to 'get justice' for transgender and Muslim people.

'They say I am the first transgender Muslim but I bet there are more - they are just frightened,' she said.

She has less body hair than most Islamic woman. she is pretty on par with a camel. I think she has a shot at this.

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with nothing showing but eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Allah...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Allah...

Picture yourself on a camel in a sandstorm,
With plasticine herders with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with single eyebrow over eyes.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Allah...

A man wants to become a woman, then does so. Once that's done, she decides to join a religion that treats women like dirt.


He could have saved all the trouble and just found a gay man to dominate and beat him, if that's what he wanted.

If this person went to an Islamist country, they would be killed the moment they stepped off the plane.

With the internet and all, those photos are probably enough for some whackjob in the Muslim world to issue a fatwa against him/her. He's not a very convincing TS.

I normally don't approve of full face coverings, but in this case, I'll make an exception.

Yeah, that's better.

It is.

Elspeth and Noonie make the point that this guy becomes a woman and then joins the most anti-woman religion on Earth, and then marries a guy who not only doesn't know that she used to be a he, but who can presumably read the Daily Mail and is now going to find this out the hard way. I don't see this going well, except as a really good episode of Jerry Springer.
