A Filipino model/beauty queen, Geena Rocero, has one of the hottest bods in the modelling and pageant industry, ranking her amongst the most sought-after beauties.
Rocero, however, shocked the world (literally) when she revealed that she was actually born a man!
She also revealed that she changed her gender in Thailand when she was 19 years old with the help of her mother. She said:
“The world makes you something you are not. But you know inside what you are. And that question burns in your heart, how would you become that. I maybe someone unique in this but I am not alone. So when I became a fashion model, I felt that I’d finally achieved the dream that I’d always wanted since I was a child. My outside self finally matched my inner truth.
All of us are put in boxes by our families, by our religion, by the society, by history. For the last 9 years, some of my neighbours, friends, colleagues and even my agent did not know I was born male. Because of my success I was scared to reveal this.”
