Lynn Conway’s Story (2000)

Lynn Conway, a pioneer of microelectronics chip design, made significant contributions to the field during the 1970s. Her work at Xerox PARC and IBM revolutionized chip design and greatly impacted the modern information technology revolution. However, what people didn’t know until recently is that Lynn also underwent a gender transition in the late 1960s. She lived in “stealth mode,” keeping her past identity hidden due to the intense ostracism and violence experienced by transsexual women at the time. Lynn’s success in her career and personal life is a testament to her resilience and determination. Her story serves as an inspiration for other transsexual individuals and highlights the need for acceptance and support.
