BB Gandanghari is now a woman…
The legal identity of Rustom Padilla is now changed after a Los Angeles court decided to grant the request she filed in August.
“This is it! And I thought this day would never come. And I thank my GOD and my LORD for making these things happen. Everything makes sense now,” she said via her Instagram account.
Bb Gandanghari, then Rustom Padilla, came out as gay in 2006 during her stint in Pinoy Big Brother with her fellow housemate Keanna Reeves.
In 2014, she announced that she is taking the name Bb Gandanghari in an interview with Anthony Taberna for the show “Tapatan ni Tunying.” She also clarified that she isn’t gay, she is transgender.
“When I came out, wala naman akong boyfriend. Wala naman akong karelasyon. So parang sabi ko, what makes me gay? Fast forward to three years after, hindi pala ako gay. Transgender pala ako,” she said.
