Eva Robins Eva Robin's was born Roberto Maurizio Coatti on December 10, 1958 in Bologna, Italy and is a transgender Italian actress and activist. She was born male and developed extremely feminine features naturally. She considers herself a hermaphrodite, rather than transsexual. She says that while she "was an apparently 'normal' boy growing up, at puberty she developed breasts and her body failed to masculinize like the other boys", which indicated an intersex condition. She felt that she was meant to be a woman, and changed her name accordingly. She has had sex reassignment surgery.
The last name does have an apostrophe as it was from a name she saw and liked, keeping the spelling.
