Russia’s first transgender politician declared his gender transition again, saying, “I have decided to return to the gender I was born with, male.”

According to the Russian daily Kommersant on the 16th (local time), Roman Alyoshin (34), a politician active in the Altai Republic in the Siberian region, wrote on his Telegram, “I realized that I am a man during a conversation with my mother during the Russian Orthodox Lent this year. “He said.

“Looking through old albums of my ancestors and praying for them helped me solidify who I was as a man,” he wrote. “I realized I had been knocking on the wrong door.” He continued, “I live in Russia because I am a patriot. He also asked for forgiveness, saying, “I apologize to all Russian people.”

Alyoshin also changed his Telegram profile picture. Previously, she was pictured with shoulder-length blonde hair and wearing a dress, but now she is pictured with short-cropped hair and a hooded jumper.

Born as a male in 1990, after graduating from college, he changed his name to Yulia Alyoshina and lived as a female. In 2020 she received a passport for the female gender.

He served as the head of the Altai Republic branch of the Russian Citizen’s Initiative Party from 2021 to 2022 and became famous as Russia’s first transgender politician, advocating for sexual minority rights. Last year, he even tried to run for election as head of the Altai Republic.

Last year, he announced his retirement from politics after the Russian Supreme Court declared the LGBT movement as extremist and effectively outlawed it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who values ​​the value of the ‘traditional family’, has been cracking down on the sexual minority movement, seeing it as evidence of moral corruption in Western countries.
