Monika: Today’s interview will be with Isley Reust, a young video blogger that documents her transition on YouTube. Hello Isley!
I felt very alone and suppressed. I grew up in a small town so I really had nobody I could talk to about how I was feeling. My sister knew about how I felt from a very young age.
At 18 I started experimenting with my sexuality and tried dating guys as a gay man but it just felt wrong. Soon after I decided to just accept who I was and be the woman I was meant to be.
Monika: Are there any transgender role models that you follow?
Laura Jane Grace is an acquaintance of mine and she told me that my videos along with others really inspired her and help her come out. Lana Wachowski is such an amazing and talented director, hands down the most talented lady for sure. She seems so genuine and has a beautiful creative heart.
