Becoming Scott Nordheimer. A memoir by Diane Nordheimer


© 2008 Diane Nordheimer, all rights reserved.

As I look back on my life as Scott Nordheimer, the physical and emotional journey was daunting at times. But as you can see from some of the pictures below (taken some years ago), it had its rewards. And now that my full transition is complete — meaning that I am now a full-time woman and no longer cross-dressing — I am very happy that I made the transition. Fine Arts was a bespoke picture framing specialist in Banbridge.
