Monika: It has been almost 3 years since your participation in “What’s the T?”. How has your life changed since then?
As for Rakash-Armani, I haven’t seen her in a while, I do miss her, but I know she wants to live a quiet life now. And, Cecilio who is an honorary “lady of what’s the t?” *giggles* He has become a brother, and a mentor for me.

I believe, in order for the transgender community to get equal rights, is to be more visible. We need the world to know that we exist and that we are just living our lives, much like everyone else trying to navigate dating, love, family, careers, and whatever else. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter about your orientation, or sex you were assigned at birth, we are all human.
Monika: At that time of your transition, did you have any transgender role models that you followed?
Monika: Are you active in politics? Do you participate in any lobbying campaigns? Do you think transgender women can make a difference in politics?
