Detransitioner Redeemed through Christ, Seeks to Help Others
Sophia Galvin was saved by the Lord. Now she seeks to save others from the trans movement just as He saved her.
From The Christian Post. A woman who underwent cross-sex hormones and surgery in an attempt to look more like a man later found Christ, detransitioned and launched an organization seeking to help others who face similar discontent with the trans movement.
Sophia Galvin documented her experiences with gender dysphoria and later becoming a Christian and wanting to detransition in an interview with conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey.
Galvin is the founder of the Rainbow Redemption Project, which provides “Kingdom-minded resources” for detransitioners “with the ultimate goal of fully redeeming their lives through the transformative power of Jesus Christ.”
Galvin said she began experiencing gender dysphoria as a teenager after having done things often expected of girls throughout her childhood, like wearing dresses and makeup.
Growing up in Miami, Florida, Galvin said that men frequently objectified her, which gave her a sense of powerlessness and fueled a desire to become a man.
By age 17, Galvin began transitioning, including having both breasts removed at 19, and taking large amounts of testosterone. By age 20, she realized her life was worse off than before.
As she detransitioned, Galvin said her life changed when she met another detransitioner online who shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with her.
“I’m a Christian, and I’ve been saved for about a year now. At 17, I made the decision to transition to become a man and it was a horrible decision,” said Galvin.
“And so, at 20 years old, I made the decision to then detransition back to female. And then after a year of not having any resources and not knowing what to do, I ended up giving my life to Christ. And it’s been a year since then.”
Galvin said there are other reasons why she wanted to become a man when she was a teenager.
“Being a woman in society — and not necessarily from a feminist sense — some of the things that I would experience [was] men [being] regularly predatory. But also, the culture has over-sexualized girls. I just felt really uncomfortable in my body and also just certain things that had happened to me in my life,” Galvin shared.
