Monika: Today’s interview will be with Mana Weindel, a young video blogger that documents her transition on YouTube. Hello Mana!
Monika: Could you describe your childhood? When did you feel for the first time that you should not be a boy or man?
I did not even consider my sexual orientation, back then I was too confused and acting on instincts most of the time. At age 18 I fell in love with a boy, him rejecting me set of many years of denial and depression, which has resulted in me not really going forward with an education or a job, it has been a big mess.
Monika: For most of transgender girls, the most traumatic time is the time spent at school, college or university when they had to face lots of discrimination. Was it the same in your case?
I actually never told her, I could not, I got her to take a walk with me where I found the term: Gender Dysphoria. On my smartphone and gave it to her for reading. Then I sat down, crying my heart out.
The situation is a little unstable due to politicians being swapped out and maybe even a new election. If the election happens we go back to square one almost, and have to fight all over again.
