According to Shawn engaged to girlfriend, Chiquita Redd Ingram, in 2008, after feeling weird and knowing something wasn't right and still being unaware of what a transman was, he went to a surgeon who had never done Female To Male Top surgery before and said, "This is what I want. I have the money just do it".
Nothing happened in 2008. Then in 2010, while watching a special on TV about a transgender man, he realized that he was not the only one. It was at that point, he came to understand and was able to put a name to what he was, a transgender man. Once he realized this, he began medically transitioning by starting hormone therapy and this is what she now looks like these days.
