The Wider Image: Gabriel's journey: a transgender Spaniard makes the change 
Gabriel Diaz de Tudanca is a 19-year-old Spaniard who, although born a girl, identified as male from early childhood. "When I was three years old I came back from school and said to my mother that when I grew up I was going to be a man called Oscar," he says. Supported by his family and friends, he has undergone surgery and hormone treatments, changed his name and renewed his identity documents to reflect what he feels is his true gender. Reuters photographer Susana Vera accompanied him for three years through his process of change. REUTERS/Susana Vera SEARCH "VERA GABRIEL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

The Wider Image: Gabriel's journey: a transgender Spaniard makes the change 
Transgender teenager Gabriel Diaz de Tudanca, 18, waits to be taken to the operating room to have his female to male chest reconstruction surgery in Madrid, Spain, October 26, 2016. "We have to be diagnosed with gender dysphoria in order to get medical treatment. My breasts always made me feel very uncomfortable, I couldnÕt wait to get them removed, but I've always disliked the term gender dysphoria because I don't feel like I have a mental disorder," Diaz de Tudanca said.

Joe Wong, 31, poses for photograph at his apartment in Bangkok April 3, 2015. Joe Wong, a 31-year-old transgender man from Singapore, underwent surgery to remove his breasts in 2007 and legally changed his name from Joleen to Joe. He had his uterus removed in 2009, and is legally recognised as a male. Wong is one of the many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Asia who faced abuse and violence from his family. To escape the violence and find acceptance, many LGBT people migrate abroad - including Wong, who moved to Bangkok, where he currently works for the rights group, the Asia Pacific Transgender Network.

Petra van Dijk, 51, walks along the Amstel after changing her officially registered gender from male to female at the City Hall, in Amsterdam July 1, 2014. Dijk is among the first to obtain new documents on Tuesday, when a new law came into effect, legalising the registration of a transgender person's preferred gender in official state documents, including identity cards and passports. It eliminates the previous law, which required hormonal treatment, surgery or sterilization before any change in gender registration is allowed.

Qian Jinfan, an 84-year-old transsexual who prefers to be addressed as "Yiling", chooses a dress at a shop in the town of Foshan, in southern China's Guangdong province, July 6, 2012. Qian, who told Reuters during an interview that she always felt she was a woman and experimented with hormone cream, tablets and injections at the age of 60, is believed to be the oldest transsexual to live openly in China. The retired Chinese Communist Party official said she would not undergo a sex-change operation until it fully guaranteed her a female body that was complete with a woman's bodily functions. She admitted her days may be limited, but hopes that speaking to the media can help break down traditional assumptions and initiate discussions about transsexuals in society. About 2,000 people in China have undergone sex-change surgery and up to 400,000 could be considering one, according to a report in 2009 by state newspaper China Daily. Picture taken July 6, 2012.

TO MATCH FEATURE STORY BC-HEALTH-SEX CHANGE - Brenda Reimer was an awkward child, who did not engage in girlish activities and was mercilessly teased by schoolmates for her gunslinger stride and lack of interest in boys. Doctors told her that her discomfort was due to a passing phase of "tomboyishness." What they didn't tell her was that she had in fact been born "Bruce" and had been subjected to gender reassignment surgery at 18 months, 10 months after doctors botched a circumcision and destroyed most of his penis. Instead of raising their child as a boy, Bruce's young parents took the advice of a famous American medical psychologist, John Money of Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, who said that Bruce could be a happy "Brenda" with the proper treatment and hormones. He was later known as David Reimer.
