A married former-Mormon couple have stayed together after one came out as transgender.

Amanda and Shaye Scott both grew up in Mormon families and have been together since they were teenagers, having three kids.

But Shaye, 39, knew she was transgender since the age of three and had never been able to properly articulate how she truly felt.

But in 2019 she came across the phrase 'gender dysphoria' online and instantly knew it described exactly what she felt.

She decided to come out to Amanda, 36, and tell her how she was truly feeling and what she was experiencing.
