Audrey Curry is a man, at least that’s what Social Security thinks. ...
Audrey was born a woman, she was married three times and her husbands’ will all vouch for her femininity. Her kids, all four of them, know she’s a she, and her grandkids know Audrey as grandma, with an emphasis on the ‘ma.’

The “he” mistake happened back in 1985 during a marriage and a name change. It only came to light now because Audrey qualifies for Medicare disability, coverage she says she needs.

“Just say I am sorry, but no, they get snotty and say you have to go correct it. I don’t stand for that,” Curry added.
