The model adds that people mistake him for being rich which is not the case.

Letoya shared thoughts on that admitting that;

“Life has its own way of putting you where you belong; but before it puts me, allow me to put myself. This entertainment industry has taught me so much. Lies, fake lives, reality and above all, the fact that you keep your enemies closer and your friends close. 😇
Every time you see me on TV or other glossy magazines and hotels, allow me to remind you that that is not who I am. It is just the situation at hand and someone is always taking care of the bills. I thank God for those kind hearts.! 😇
The plain truth is this, what you see in this photo is exactly how our house looks like. That is the kitchen, bed room, living room and everything. The only difference is that the toilets are the bush nearby. Fact.! 😇”

Not bothered by what people might think upon her confession, Letoya  continues

“Whenever I see people show off their wealth around me, I also choose to stand strong in front of them and present that picture up there. That is what me and my mother owns. What my family can stand up and say, I am going home or see you at my house. 😇

“Most people have advised me not to post these kind of photos because they bring me disrespect as someone in the fashion industry with a name to protect. My question is, until when shall we fake it till we make it? I came from nothing and my jurisdiction is to work hard and change the narrative of my life. Not through lies but in truth. 😇”

Letoya is a multi talented individual respected in her field of work. She rubs shoulders with the who’s who of the fashion and entertainment industry and for this she says

“Every time you see me work so hard, just know the failures I have encountered are way higher and the stair case to change is a battle that is larger than myself. Hopefully one day I will post a beautiful home according to your standards but for now this is who I am to date.”

“Poverty is a lesson that is never taught in school. It is something you go through to understand life in a deeper meaning. This is my Bangalore. When I die, never expect our home to be Cinderella Story. I stand to be myself. 😇
Show off time. Tag me your home and be proud. ! 😇

Man Leaves Family Behind To Live As 6 Year Old Girl

According to The Independent, a man named Stefonknee (pronounced ‘Stephanie’) Wolschtt, had been married for 23 years when he realized he was transgender.

He is now living with an adoptive family as a six year old girl, because he “doesn’t want to grow up”.

According to a video posted by The transgender project, Stefonknee says “I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child,”

Wolschtt said his wife could not accept him as a transgender woman. He was told to either “stop being trans or leave”.

To me, ‘stop being trans’ isn’t something I could do,” he says. “It would be like telling me to stop being 6ft 2 or leave.”

Feeling rejected by his family, Wolschtt left and now lives with an adoptive family, who he says are “totally comfortable with me being a little girl”.

He explains how his new parents’ youngest granddaughter wanted a little sister and decided Wolschtt should be younger than her.

We have a great time. We color, we do kid’s stuff,” he says.

It’s called play therapy. No medication, no suicide thoughts. And I just get to play.”

Wolschtt spoke of how he became suicidal and was hospitalized a month after taking part in the first Toronto transgender march in 2009 and again in 2012 after his daughter asked him to attend her wedding dressed like a man and he should seat behind and not address the family members.

Obama Administration Employs First Transgender Woman At White House

President Obama’s administration employed the first transgender woman at the White House. Raffi Freedman-Gurspan was appointed as the outreach and recruitment director for presidential personnel in the white House Office of Presidential Personnel.

Speaking to Huffington Post National Center for Transgender Equality Executive (NCTE) Director Mara Keisling said, “President Obama has long said he wants his Administration to look like the American people. That the first transgender appointee is a transgender woman of color is itself significant.”

Raffi Freedman served as a staff member at the NCTE working as a policy adviser for the organization’s Racial and Economic Justice Initiative.

Raffi Freedman-Gurspan demonstrates the kind of leadership this Administration champions,” Valerie Jarrett, a White House senior adviser, echoed Keisling’s sentiments. “Her commitment to bettering the lives of transgender Americans, particularly transgender people of color and those in poverty, reflects the values of this Administration,” Jarett added.

India elects first transgender mayor

A low-caste transgender in central India has become the country’s first to win civic polls and be declared mayor.Madhu Bai Kinnar won the municipal election in Raigarh in the central state of Chhattisgarh Sunday, beating her rival from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by more than 4,500 votes, according to the state election commission.

Video footage showed the 35-year-old Kinnar draped in a saree, folding her hands and greeting supporters who placed marigold garlands around her neck amid a blaze of camera flashes.

Kinnar, a member of the Dalit caste previously known as “untouchables”, had been earning a living by singing and dancing on trains, the Press Trust of India reported, but she stopped when asked to represent her community.

“People have shown faith in me. I consider this win as love and blessings of people for me. I’ll put in my best efforts to accomplish their dreams,” Kinnar told reporters after winning the election.

Kinnar’s win comes nine months after India’s top court ruled that transgenders be legally recognised as gender-neutral.

Transgender activist wins court battle on name change

Transgender Audrey Mbugua born Andrew Mbugua has reason to celebrate after the High Court on Tuesday ordered the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to have her new identity on her examination certificates.

Justice Weldon Korir has ordered KNEC to comply to the ruling in the next 45 days.

He also said the certificate should be printed without a gender mark and that Audrey should meet any extra costs required.

“These are the orders that will make the applicant (Ithibu) complete as a human being. The applicant has satisfied this court that the orders should be issued. An order of mandamus is therefore issued to compel KNEC to recall the applicant’s KCSE certificate issued in the name of Andrew Mbugua and replace the said certificate with one in the name of Audrey Mbugua Ithibu,” Justice Korir said granting Audrey’s request.

Andrew had filed the request following refusal by KNEC to change her certificates.
