Interview with Bianca Lewis


Monika: Today’s interview will be with Bianca Lewis, a video blogger that documents her transition on YouTube. Hello Bianca!
Bianca: Hi Monika, and everybody, glad to share my views with you today.
Monika: Could you say a few words about yourself?
Bianca: Well – I am definitely not defined by transition. Being female has always been a part of me that has experienced amazing journeys. I grew up in Apartheid South Africa, experienced bacterial meningitis with coma, then paralysis in a wheel chair for a year, love, divorce, death of almost all my family, the Middle East, war – and that is the just the start of what has made me, well…me.

Maria Roman: From Starlet to Star (02)


Monika: In 2006 you won the 5th annual Quest Advocacy Pageant hosted by the Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team, gaining the title Miss Quest 2008. Was the competition tough?
Maria: What was amazing about this Pageant is that the focus is not only beauty but they are looking for a well-rounded individual who is involved in the community and that perhaps can act as an ambassador for Transgender Women and speak on key issues that the community continues to face. With that said this was my second time competing in Miss Quest I had originally competed in 2002 and lost the title to my beloved friend Alexis Rivera who we lost last year.

Interview with Louise Hannon


Monika: Today’s interview is with Louise Hannon, a transgender advocate and activist, photographer from Ireland. Hello Louise!
Louise: Hello Monika!
Monika: Could you say a few words about yourself?
Louise: I've been asked this kind of question before, but how do you describe yourself? Probably other people would describe me much better. I'm passionate about equality and justice where I see something which I feel is wrong. Be that economically or physically wrong in my eyes. I tend to confront injustice. I was very much the same all my life but it's only in recent times that I have been able financially and in my private life to have had the spare time to do what I do.
