BB Gandanghari, formerly known as Rustom Padilla, a Filipina transgender actress, came out four years ago while inside the Pinoy Big Brother house, saying that the Rustom Padilla – who the people used to know – is already dead.

Her first film role after then was as a gay man in the movie adaptation of the comic book Zsazsa Zaturnnah. In one of the interviews she did after the release of the movie, she stated that she’s planning to undergo sex reassignment surgery and to campaign for LGBT rights in the future.

In a chat with Outrage Magazine during the 2013 LGBTQ reception of the US Embassy, Gandanghari expressed her call for equal rights.

As Gandanghari stressed: “The LGBT community is doing the right thing fighting for our rights (because) whether we like it or not, discrimination is happening.”
