My career began to unravel as I struggled to be me. Without financial or emotional support, I did as women in our world have through-out time, turned to the oldest profession. I worked as a transsexual escort- selling my body to survive in our nations capitol, Washington, DC.Here you will find my journey - from lost child, through semi-successful masquerade as a professional performer, and finally to the empowered woman I am today.
