66-year-old Evie, all his life considered himself to be a woman. His life has never been easy. Growing up, my father often beaten son, who, in his view, "behaved like a girl." The boy tried to adjust to the public view on how should look like a "real man", but soon realized that from himself he cannot escape. Leaving school after the third grade, Evie has graduated from courses for cooks.

Evie is so well mastered the art of cooking that impressed the Directors of several large restaurants. For several years he successfully worked as a chef in several establishments, while in 1969 not met at a party with Ann Dunham — mother of Barack Obama, who moved to Indonesia in 1967, she was married to resident of Jakarta, Lolo Soetoro.

Soon, in addition to cooking, transvestite he began to look for little Barry, who later was destined to become one of the most influential people in the world. Evie picked up the boy from school and helped him do homework. In the evenings, chef tutor regularly went on walks, dressing up in a dress. Indonesian says that he tried not to face Barry in that form, although he admits that the boy sometimes watched as his tutor used my mother's lipstick.

When the family of the future American President left Indonesia in the early 1970s, things Evie has sharply gone on recession. He wanted to get a maid, but nobody wanted to hire him. Then, to earn a living, the man who considered himself to be a woman, turned to prostitution. It lasted almost 15 years until in 1985 Evie and his friends-drag Queens are not attacked by the soldiers. They beat the Indonesian, shaved him bald, and began to extinguish him about the head butts. One of the friends Evie died. Since then the man decided to hide his true face.

Did he get rid of all the items of women's wardrobe, stopped wearing makeup for many years and goes to a nondescript baggy clothes. Evie works as a laundress, and lives in constant fear: attitude to homosexual people in Indonesian society is still very severe. Now the man says that he has no future. He seeks solace in Islam, praying several times a day and, by his own admission, dreams of death.

Many friends did not believe the Indonesian, however, former neighbors of the Obama family, who still live opposite the house once owned by the mother of the future President of the United States, say they remember Barry and his nanny.
