Known in his former life as Prince Coleman, the transgender, who now has his gender changed from a male to female, looks so much confident in her new looks.

Well, Prince Coleman who is now Angela Coleman has a lot ahead of her as she would now have to break through the walls of stigma and rejection if achieving her goals and aspiration is anything to go by.

Ghana is never anywhere close to legalizing homosexuality as the speaker of parliament, Prof. Mike Ocquaye, has insisted that "this animalistic act" will never find its place in the country.
