#Throwback#chooseday I choose to remind myself of my greatness... I've been labelled sooo many mean things because not only do I have dreams and have always made sure that I work to achieve these dreams, BUT BECAUSE I AM TRANSGENDER AND I DARE TO DREAM AND CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO. From "Who does 'he' think will hire him enje ezoConfuser iiCo-workers, iiClients zona?" To, "Akhose Oorkant apha uzofa nayo loongqondo if awbhadlanga". The insults I've had to endure #Moffie#talase#sheman#stabane etc etc just because people didn't and still don't understand me, or who I am😔... (I AM NOT GAY, thou sometimes I wish I was as it's a lot easier)
Don't worry, this is not a pity party, I know my worth and ive got a thick skin, but what's more puzzling is the fact that people EXPECT me to cry and drown myself in self pity because of the opinions THEY HAVE ABOUT SOMETHING THEY HAVE NO CLUE OF based on their OWN lack of self assurance, love and respect. What f*ckery?
ANYWAY, awards are a reminder of what we have achieved and can still achieve, these are the last awards I received and that was in Matric, and bester believe I SLAYED all those bullies and still came out top 😉
Tonight I'm posting something very brave -even I I say so myself, AND NOT ONLY WILL I BE ADDRESSING THE MEDIA ABOUT BEING TRANSGENDER AND TRYING TO MAKE A NAME FOR YOURSELF IN SOUTH AFRICA TODAY, but it will also be an outcry to my beloved country and it's people... To the people that inspire me who are different, have stayed true to themselves and made it work @thickleeyonce @somizi @gertjohancoetzee refilwe modeselle @muzi_z to MY ICONS OF LIFE, the people that dare me to dream, the game changers @bonang_m @djsbu @trevornoah @connie_ferguson @basetsanakhumalo @kefilwe_mabote @mbaureloaded and even the people who just love me and have reassured me that I'm a star and that my time has come @montshotheblack @snothando_mthi @anelisasobekwa @asanelesobekwa @vicky_vee_jonas @n.steez YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME....
