There were many confusions about his gender, but since Aprilia changed his sex, people will have no more confusion regarding this context. Formerly known as a female, the former volleyball player comes out as male after completing his first corrective surgery.
Was Aprilia A Female Before?
Aprilia was not actually a female before, but his parents raised him as one. The historical background of Manganang’s gender is quite hard to explain.
Born with a rare condition called hypospadias, people were too concerned about transgender or lesbian. However, Andi Perkasa denied this fact.
Andi also revealed that his family couldn’t afford the surgery cost, which is why his gender was a question until early March. But, this question’s answer has now been solved!
