Geena Rocero: Why I must come out (Must see)

 

When fashion model Geena Rocero first saw a professionally shot photo of herself clad in a bikini, she was beside herself. “I thought…you have arrived!” she says proudly. This might not be the typical experience, but, as Rocero reveals, that’s because she was born with the gender assignment “boy.” In a moving and personal talk, Rocero finds that transgender activism is giving her a whole new sense of pride and purpose.


 

This is a truly inspirational story. I feel lucky that I live in an era where diversity is being encouraged. There is still a lot of work to be done, but it like sharing these stories, hopefully people will open their mind and accept other’s difference.
