Happy Birthday Carmen Xtravaganza!
One of the persons I wrote a post about was Carmen Xtravaganza.
She is strikingly beautiful (still is) and one of the many people I looked up to during that 80's time period I was in trans information gathering mode and weighing the decision to transition.
In the wake of this post I wrote, I realized that I wanted to lead by example and get to know, have regular conversations with and hopefully form lasting friendships with my sisters in the ballroom and pageant worlds.
I was thrilled to get a FB friends request from this ballroom legend recently, and we've been chatting from time to time. It's been a blast getting to know her and I am so looking forward to meeting her the next time I'm in the New York area or wherever our paths cross.
Anyway, she told me during our chat yesterday that April 9 is her birthday, so I'm giving her TransGriot birthday shoutout treatment .
Happy birthday Carmen! May you have many more!.
