00:02 When I was a male body, people would say
00:04 I was too feminine.
00:06 When I transitioned to a female,
00:09 people said I wasn't feminine enough to be a woman.
00:13 Survival looks different for different people.
00:16 For me, my safety, my existence,
00:19 I had to take different measures.
00:22 When I committed a crime, I did my time.
00:25 But people couldn't get away from classifying me
00:29 as a criminal, but those labels did not break me.
00:34 These labels have energized me to be the woman I am today
00:38 and to defy the limitations.
00:43 I'm proud to be an activist.
00:46 I'm proud to be a trans artist of color.
00:50 I'm proud to be beautiful.
00:52 I'm proud to be talented.
00:55 These are labels that you can smile about,
00:57 that make you want to wake up to the next day.
