GOLD CANYON – Bobbi Lancaster is a skilled golfer, author and family doctor. And until 2010, she had lived her life as a man.

“I was in the closet hiding from my wife, hiding from everybody, secretly crossdressing at times, feeling hopeless that I would never ever be able to just live openly,” Lancaster said. “I would just hide my whole life.”

Lancaster sat down with Cronkite News sports reporter Brian Brindley to talk about her life experiences.
