About the speaker

Robin Patty

Robin Patty is an avid hunter who can take down a deer with a handgun. She is an engine-tinkering Jeep enthusiast. And she is a former Green Beret who jumped out of Army planes training for U.S. Special Forces operations. But her exterior has changed. She has recently undergone the surgical transition process — facial and sexual reconstruction — that will bring her closer to the person she always has been inside. A woman.
