Jaqui Lazelle is a 58 year old from Ipswich who's just had a male-to-female sex change operation - or gender reassignment as it's called in the medical profession. Her film is part of a BBC wide Relationships project.
Jaqui says she always knew she didn't feel 'male', but it's taken her until her fifties to do something about it in terms of her physical body. In February 2007, she went to Charing Cross Hospital in London for the surgery.
Back home in Ipswich, she's been getting used to her change of life and in her film she talks about her relationships with her parents and her two grown-up sons.
Jaqui has also made a film about the decision to have the operation:
