TED talk: Geena Rocero on why I must come out


When fashion model Geena Rocero first saw a professionally shot photo of herself clad in a bikini, she was beside herself. “I thought…you have arrived!” she says proudly. This might not be the typical experience, but, as Rocero reveals, that’s because she was born with the gender assignment “boy.” In a moving and personal talk, Rocero finds that transgender activism is giving her a whole new sense of pride and purpose.
