Anne Cognito was the highest placed British woman at the 1991 and 1992 world windsurfing championships in 14th place: unremarkable but for the fact that she was assigned male at birth. She kept her transgender history secret, fearing the consequences of competition as a trans woman in less enlightened times. After being sacked from the British intelligence services in 1985 for transitioning from male to female, she has lived a hidden life ever since. She describes how her trans history informs every aspect of the daily routine whilst leading an outwardly ordinary, but sometimes extraordinary, life. The first trans woman to represent Britain in international sporting competition? The fastest trans woman to run the London Marathon? Rejected by family and friends, and sacked for transitioning, to becoming the top ranked British woman at the World Windsurfing Championships. Loss, life and love. This is her story.
