Recalling what made him decide to remove his genitalia, Trent told Metro US: “It really didn’t feel like part of me. It’s along the lines of being trans, but not quite.
“I have no desire to be a woman. It’s kind of a middle ground in-between the two, an androgynous in-between.
“I came across some pictures when I was in high school, online, and I’ve been that way since, back since I was probably, 15.
“I saw a photo online – it was like, bam, first photo I saw, that’s me, I want to be there some day. ‘I think it was a photo of [famous nullo] Gelding. He’s kind of like the grandfather of the community,’” Trent told the publication.
The IT worker recalled: “I used a ceramic [knife] because it’s sharper than steel, less ripping and tearing.”
Trent explained that he travelled to hospital immediately after on both occasions, where a surgeon stitched him up and gave him painkillers.
He also talked to a mental health team about his decision to remove his genitals.
Speaking of the pain he said he “had no problem with it”.
“I used a little bit of a numbing agent, a little bit of lidocaine on it, and I took to five milligrams of oxycodone that they prescribed me when I did my balls to take the edge off.
Trent, who describes himself as non-binary, says he is sexually attracted to men. But he does not like the pronoun ‘they’ and says he feels more male than female.
He adds he has no regrets over his decision to become a nullo.
“I feel happier. I feel more me. I feel, I guess, freer in a sense. It’s kind of hard to describe it.
“More how I’m meant to be, at heart. I feel more like the me I’ve always felt I was.
“With people who have a problem I’m like, f**k it, its not your body, don’t worry about it.”
