I realized I’m not the kind of person who wants to go with the flow and fit in. I’m an agitator, I’m opinionated, I’m a libertine and leader.
I enjoy being a character actor; I enjoy being different in everything. I want a private life; I want to be able to go to 7-11 and not get into a fight with a guy because he saw me in a movie, or not have people hitting on me simply because they saw me in a movie.
I want parents out there to know that it’s totally natural for kids to make believe and play games. It does not mean your child is going to be transgendered. And even if it were true, why is it such a horrible thing?
It’s very important to me that people accept me as a transgendered female. But it’s ridiculous to a lot of people and I understand that.
I grew up at a time with androgyny in the 1980s; it was easy to pass under the radar as a gay may.
Yes, I am transgendered but I also am a cross-dresser – I dress as a woman. It’s not that I just want to be seen as a female in our society, I’m also a drag queen and a performer – there are many levels there.
