During an intimate hour-long interview with Daily Wire host Candace Owens, 22-year-old Briana Ivy detailed the horrors of irreversible transgender treatments and surgeries he has been through, first starting as a minor.
Ivy, who is biologically male and identifies as transgender, told Owens he was deformed and mutilated, drastically affecting his mental health, by a surgeon he found through controversial TikTok-famous surgeon Sidhbh Gallagher.
“I remember there was an intense fascination with what was being done to me,” Ivy recalled about his time in the hospital immediately following what’s been dubbed a “bottom surgery.” “I remember nurses at the hospital, residents of the hospital, various people there, would come in, they look at me, tell me, ‘This is cool, we’ve never seen someone as young as you have this done,’ ‘We’ve never seen this surgery done here.’”
“I remember Dr. [Joshua] Roth would bring in multiple residents, just watch me while I was sitting there and I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t move, I was in so much pain. People just came in and it was like a science class,” Ivy recounted.
At a young age, Ivy felt effeminate and like he didn’t fit in with other boys, but felt safe with girls in his class. Influenced by cultural moments, like the media movement around Jazz Jennings, Ivy felt incredibly uncomfortable with his body and told his parents at age 14 that he was transgender. He was quickly taken to a gender clinic and after a 30-minute discussion with a social worker, was moved on to a doctor for a prescription of hormone blockers and additional hormones. And by 19 years old, Ivy has already undergone two transgender surgical procedures.
During a “bottom surgery,” doctors tried to turn Ivy’s penis into a vagina with some of his stomach lining. The aftermath was “searing pain” that he still deals with today, and genitals, he says, that don’t resemble genitals of either sex.
“I had a catheter in for about a month, attached to a bag, and I could feel it every second,” Ivy said, explaining what happened post-op. “And you also have to dilate when you have this procedure — there are essentially [what look like large toys] and you have to put them in and keep them in for 30 minutes at a time. And it felt like a knife inside of me, but I was terrified to not miss a second because then all of this would be a waste.”
“Every single day the pain was worse, and the bleeding was worse,” the 22-year-old said. “I would bleed all over the bed every time I would do it.”
When Ivy said things didn’t feel right and complained about the pain, the surgeon told him to just continue with the dilation exercises. “I couldn’t,” Ivy said. “I just felt shredded inside.”
