LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — After migrating to the United States from the Philippines following sex change surgery at 19, trans woman Geena Rocero felt empowered to chase her dream to become a model in New York City after being issued a driver’s license according to a story ABS-CBN News.
Rocero: “That was a powerful moment, I mean for some people, their IDs are a license to drive or even to get a drink. But for me, that was my license to live. To feel dignified.”
At the start of her modelling career however, Geena feared how others would treat her, so she told no one — friends or colleagues — that she was transgender, until now — after nearly a decade in the modelling business.
Rocero again: “This very moment is my real coming out. I can no longer live my truth for and by myself. I want to do my best to help others live their truth without shame and terror.”
Another trans role model and activist is born.
With any luck at all, Geena might bring in the same kind of positive PR in the press trans model Jenna Talackova generated — the kind money can’t buy: https://lexiecannes.com/2013/12/19/trans-model-jenna-talackova-gets-spread-in-fashion-magazine-launches-reality-show/
