Dr Jamie Wallis, the MP for Bridgend in Wales, announced he has officially been diagnosed with gender dysphoria but has “felt this way” since childhood.
“I have never lived my truth and I’m not sure how. Perhaps it starts with telling everyone.”
Boris Johnson praised the MP for showing “an immense amount of courage” and paid tribute to him at the top of PMQs.
Dr Wallis thanked people for the “outpouring of support” and clarified he was keeping he/him pronouns for now.
In a moving statement released at 3am Dr Wallis revealed he was raped in September after refusing to have sex with an internet date.
He said: “I ‘hooked up’ with someone who I met online and when I chose to say ‘no’ on the basis that he wouldn’t wear a condom he chose to rape me.
“I have not been myself since the incident and I don’t think I will ever recover.
