In Brief

Model and activist Geena Rocero discusses how to elevate global transgender awareness why she decided to come out on the TED stage.

On the TED stage this year in Vancouver, many new ideas were revealed and explained. For speaker and model Geena Rocero, her time on stage was a lot more personal. During the twelve years previous, Rocero had been making a name for herself as an internationally-renowned fashion and swimsuit model, but in honor of International Transgender Day of Visibility, Rocero came out on stage as having been assigned the male gender at birth based on her genitalia, and having undergone a transformation into the woman she is today.
