MAG siyam na taon na mula nang yumao ang dating katauhan ni BB Gandanghari na si Rustom Padilla.

Sa Instagram post ni BB Gandanghari, ginunita nito ang araw noong ilantad niya ang kanyang bagong katauhan noong January 2009. Ito ang nasabing post ni BB:”I’m a woman so call me BB. BB Gandanghari… BB as in Binibini… Rustom is dead, Rustom is not here.”

Jan16,2018: Waiting to exhale… It has been 9 yrs since, when a woman named BB. declared ‘Rustom is DEAD.’ So, who killed Rustom Padilla, to quote #RickyLo’s headline, and where is his body? Well, his body was never found and the prime suspect lived in liberty but not without cause. As I enter my decade of resilience to endure all that is needed to go thru the very, an understatement, difficult process called TRANSITION, even more challenging times ahead is expected. I’ve been mentioning these different aspects such as the physical, social, psychological, spiritual, physiological and professional confusion bec I have believed from the onset of my transition that all of these will be vital as I see myself eventually assimilating in the society as a woman, not as a man cross dressing as a woman or as a gay man, no pun intended, but as a WOMAN, transgender I may be. My life since Januaryof2009, was anything but EASY. It is a decade of self awakening and awareness. A decade of, without being dramatic, back breaking experiences in the physical and spiritual sense. Had it not with the guiding force and strength of a straight from the heart prayers to the one and only true God, Jehovah, nothing will ever be possible. I look back and wonder, how the heck, I have even gone this far? And not only did I get this far, I can honestly say also, that I’m exactly where I am supposed to be. Peaceful and hopeful as I enter my decade of womanhood, despite the troubling hate that threatens my person even in the land of the Free and the Brave. And in the wake of #MLKJr. day… may I pay tribute, in my own little way, to the man I consider a modern day hero for he has remained a constant reminder that indeed, I too can Dream… that I am in the land who BELIEVE and RESPECT that “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.” #transisbeautiful #transpinay #pinayactressinhollywood #dreamtobecome #kabuki #elizabeththevirginqueen #actorsaccess #lacasting #castingfrontier #castingsocietyofamerica @thebroganagency

Matatandaan, Si BB ang noo’y heartthrob at leading man na si Rustom Padilla. Ayon pa kay BB: “It has been 9 yrs since, when a woman named BB declared ‘Rustom is DEAD.’

“As I enter my decade of resilience to endure all that is needed to go thru the very, an understatement, difficult process called TRANSITION, even more challenging times ahead is expected.”

Sa ngayon si BB ay kasalukuyang naninirahan sa U.S. Umaasa naman si BB na balang araw ay kikilalanin siya bilang isang babae. “Not as a man cross dressing as a woman or as a gay man, no pun intended, but as a WOMAN, transgender I may be. My life since January of 2009, was anything but EASY. It is a decade of self-awakening and awareness. A decade of, without being dramatic, back breaking experiences in the physical and spiritual sense.” Deklara pa niya.
