- She revealed that her parents support her fully
A transgender woman by the name of Veso Golden Oke, has revealed that she is focused on her goals to become more beautiful regardless of the social stigma and homophobia she experiences from people.
According to the Nigeria-born Ghanaian transgender woman, she once came close to committing suicide due to the social stigma, and abuse, she experienced when she lived in Nigeria.
Veso Golden Oke, who was speaking in an interview on Kofi TV, lamented how transgender individuals are treated in society when they are all created by God.
According to the 26-year-old professional model and make-up artist, she is a woman trapped in the body of a man because she has always "known" she is a woman.
“I have never been gay. I am a woman from childhood. I have always thought, dressed and walked as a girl and sometimes when I was much younger I prayed before going to bed that by morning God should transform me into a girl," She said.
Despite the criticism she has experienced, Veso Golden Oke went on to say that she considers herself lucky since her parents have given her their full support.
