Alishia Brevard

I'm only sorry this clip is so short. Aleshia Brevard is a fascinating person who transitioned back when almost no  one else had. What a tough cookie. I've heard other interviews with her that were a bit more substantial than this one, but she's such an interesting (trans)woman: female impersonator, starlet/actress, writer, theater director. We should all be this great when we're 70+ years old.

If anyone is looking for more about Aleshia, she also has written a fascinating book about her life and transition, "The Woman I Was Not Born to Be".

Wow, she did it herself.  What a brave soul! :)  She was so feminine-looking even as a child.  The only thing I didn't like was the narrator calling her a he.  Yeah, I know she was referring to Alishia's life prior to transition, but still, I think she should have used she instead of he.  Great video overall, thanks for posting it, Gina.
