Reflections : Transgender at 7; Out at 84
by Eve Burchert




Overview -
Imagine having two personas; two distinctly different lives; for nearly 77 years. That was the reality for Eve Burchert. Since the age of seven; Eve knew that the reflection she saw in a mirror wasn't quite right; but it wasn't until many years later that she understood these feelings: she was transgender. Reflections is a deeply personal story that follows the trials and tribulations of Eve's life. Born Eberhard Burchert in pre-World War II Germany; Eve knew for a majority of her life that she was meant to live as a woman. She was haunted by these emotions; yet denied them during her every day life as she focused on surviving the harsh end of World War II and immigrating to America with nothing but $64 and two suitcases. While she wasn't out to her family and friends; Eve was an active member of the transgender community; breaking barriers and teaching many about what it meant to be trans; while reveling in the chance to be herself -- if only for a weekend. After 77 years; Eve is no longer relegated to the weekends; her feminine attire pushed to the back of her closet. Now her reflection is one she recognizes.
