Alana McLaughlin is a transgender MMA fighter from the US.
She was born a male in South Carolina, US to a very religious and homophobic family and came out as trans at age 20.
For years, McLaughlin attended conversion therapy sessions upon her parents’ request. They refused her request to have gender reassignment surgery on several occasions and they did everything they could think of to make her more “masculine.”
America is a Great Country in which to live.
