Trans is Just the Title

– Get to Know Erin


Many of us see trans individuals at least once per day. Whether we’re with peers, co-workers, family or friends – loving, knowing and interacting with Trans people shouldn’t really be a big deal. Knowing that it is still a thing has encouraged me to open dialogues with people who live lives just like you.

Hopefully, knowing them virtually will help you love them personally. Most of all, I hope to start bridging a crucial gap of understanding. We’ve gathered a few random questions – some of which you may have in common!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my beautiful friend, Erin. She lives in the Philippines and is such a joy to be around. Enjoy.




First of all, thank you again for doing this with me. It’s so important for people to meet and know someone as awesome as you.


1. When did you realize who you are?

-Since I was 7 or 8. I learned that I’m gay when I started feeling affection towards men.


2. How did your family receive it?

-At first, they weren’t that accepting as I am the only and the first gay person in the family. They used to mock me and call me “Bakla” (Fag in English) and make fun of me by pulling my shorts down. But eventually, after seeing what I achieved, what I am capable of and how sharp my personality is, they slowly accepted me and supported me all throughout.


3. Your friends?

-They were the first to accept me as soon as I came out. They are more than supportive that we share dresses.


4. What’s the most difficult part about being you?

-Trying to find a partner. A serious one. To tell you honestly, people like me are viewed as source of money of men here in the Philippines. A lot of people think that we would invest money just to feel the love we deserve.


5. What’s one thing do you love about yourself? Or, can you name more than one?

– I love how fast I can overcome emotional pain; I’ll cry about it one night then I’ll be okay the next day.


6. Do you find dating to be difficult where you are?

-For me, as a transitioning gay person, it’s really hard to date anyone for the simple fact that the Philippines has a small number of people that are willing to date people like me. If you are bisexual and if you look straight, that way, you can easily get someone to date.


7. How do you feel about the term “LadyBoy?”

– I sort of love it. For me, it’s both sexy and enticing.


8. What’s your favorite activity/hobby in your rest days?

– I love to sing when I’m at home during rest days. I love to lock myself in the bathroom and record songs.


Trans9. Name one talent/weird fact that people may not know about you (fear of statues, maybe?).

– Well, I don’t tell this to everyone but I have a weird attraction towards older men. The 40ish type.


10. If you could do one thing right now, what would it be?

– It’s to travel and stay away from work for some time.


Do you have questions? Curiosities? Messages of support for Erin? Email me at and I’ll be glad to send the love.
