29 KINGSTON JAMAICA

“The woman I am today is resilient, inspiring, altruistic and empathetic. She is a fashion enthusiast and a woman knowledgeable beyond her years by way of experience. Life as a black openly trans woman in Jamaica is not for the faint of heart. It requires the right mindset and the right group of people around you for support whenever and wherever it’s needed. I’m very blessed to be on a journey of constant growth, because the opportunities are scarce and you have to make the most out of every little opportunity that presents itself because Jamaican society looks down on trans people as sex symbols and mentally / morally confused people but each day that I exist in my skin and take up space is a political act against such beliefs which I treasure dearly along with my health, happiness and God.”
