39-year-old Rose Geil says men keep bugging her Instagram account for dates with some even going as far as asking her out for marriage – even without meeting her in person. Her selling point? Her full-grown manly beards and hair-covered chest.
“All of my friends and family are incredibly supportive – they really had no idea how much I struggled and how much it was affecting me.
“People on the street do look at me and do a double take, but their reactions are either positive or neutral.
“I have had people approach me in public and wanted to meet me and shake my hand and tell me I’m brave and courageous and even an inspiration.”
