Born male, Walt Heyer began transitioning to female at 42 years-old. He lived that way for eight years before realizing he had been a victim of childhood abuse and began the process of returning to his birth-assigned gender.
In an explosive interview with controversial conservative host Candace Owens, Heyer re-told the story of his troubled childhood; how his grandmother sparked gender confusion by encouraging him to wear a purple dress at the age of four – and how he suffered sexual abuse at the hands of an uncle as a direct result.
The MOST IMPORTANT interview I’ve ever done is out now!
Former Transgender woman Walt Heyer completely obliterates the “trans” narrative & reveals the truth; children switching genders signifies child abuse from the adults that watch them.

The consequences of [grandma] affirming me became very destructive – I think it’s actually evil and it’s child abuse to indicate that you can change genders at such a young age, and I’m speaking from 74 years of experience, so it’s not like I just came to this conclusion,” Heyer told Owens.
Today they call it gender dysphoria, but “it’s really just child abuse,” he said.
It confused my identity of who I was – the seed was planted and the destruction had started.
Heyer believes that the idea of gender dysphoria is introduced to children by adults and that a person is “not born with it.” To encourage it creates an abhorrent “early sexualization” of the child, he said.
Heyer now runs a website for those who regret transitioning and publishes books and articles on the subject. He believes there is a misconception that transgenderism has something to do with being gay, but claims that 95 percent of the people who he speaks to about wanting to detransition are not gay.
