YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

Jan16,2018: Wait­ing to ex­hale... It has been 9 yrs since, when a woman named BB. de­clared ‘Rus­tom is DEAD.’ So, who killed Rus­tom Padilla, to quote #Rick­yLo’s head­line, and where is his body? Well, his body was never found and the prime sus­pect lived in lib­erty but not with­out cause. As I en­ter my decade of re­silience to en­dure all that is needed to go thru the very, an un­der­state­ment, dif­fi­cult process called TRAN­SI­TION, even more chal­leng­ing times ahead is ex­pected. I’ve been men­tion­ing these dif­fer­ent as­pects such as the phys­i­cal, so­cial, psy­cho­log­i­cal, spir­i­tual, phys­i­o­log­i­cal, pro­fes­sional... bec I have be­lieved from the on­set of my tran­si­tion that these will all be vi­tal as I see my­self even­tu­ally as­sim­i­lat­ing in the so­ci­ety as a woman, not as a man cross dress­ing as a woman or as a gay man, no pun in­tended, but as a WOMAN, trans­gen­der I may be. My life since Jan­uary of 2009, was any­thing but EASY. It is a decade of self awak­en­ing and aware­ness. A decade of, with­out be­ing dra­matic, back break­ing ex­pe­ri­ences in the phys­i­cal and spir­i­tual sense. Had it not with the guid­ing force and strength of a straight from the heart pray­ers to the one and only true God, Je­ho­vah, noth­ing will ever be pos­si­ble. I look back and won­der, how the heck, I have even gone this far? And not only did I get this far, I think I can hon­estly say also, that I’m ex­actly where I am sup­posed to be. Peace­ful and hope­ful as I en­ter my decade of wom­an­hood, de­spite the troubling hate that threat­ens my per­son even in the land of the Free and the Brave. And in the wake of #MLKJr. day... may I pay trib­ute, in my own lit­tle way, to the man I con­sider a mod­ern day hero for he has re­mained a con­stant re­minder that in­deed, I too can Dream... that I am in the land who BE­LIEVE and RE­SPECT that “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.” #tran­sis­beau­ti­ful #tran­spinay #kabuki# el­iz­a­beth the vir­gin queen #ac­tor­sac­cess #la­cast­ing #cast­ingfron­tier #cast­ing so­ci­ety of amer­ica @the­bro­gan­a­gency —BB Gan­dan­g­hari’s In­sta­gram post
