Am I a girl on the inside?

Hi.
I am a boy, but I feel I am a girl on the inside.
For example, when I was little I played with Barbies and put on high heels and listened to girly songs; it just made me happy. I still love playing with Barbies and heels but now I do it secretly when I am home alone.
Do these behaviors mean I am really a girl on the inside?
