  2. Roberta Westerberg

    I graduated with an MA in Psychology back in 1997. After that I did not work in the psychological field, but was an abstract artist for awhile. Later I joined Benedictine Oblate community, made my Oblation, and eventually migrated from Washington State to Oregon.

    While all this was going on I realized that my assigned gender (née Robert Allan Westerberg) was not my true gender. I came out as Roberta Arlene in 2003 and retired at age 62 in 2005.

    Last year, after visiting family in Sweden, I decided to come out of retirement and get involved in the LGBT human rights movement by becoming a transgender/intersex advocate. I joined the APA (Div.44) and I am presently studying transgender and intersex issues to become up-to-date in this relatively new area of study.
