TGG: That sounds wonderful! I would love to go on one of these trips. So, what’s next for you? I hear you’re getting into acting and DJing.
TR: I have been a DJ for more than a decade and I still do it now but more focus on private events, corporate events and special occasions.
While acting is still quite new to me. I started learning theatre arts 3yrs ago. And the reason why I pursue acting it’s because of the lack of representation from the LGBT+ here in Japan in the film industry.
I think the media can be a powerful tool for increasing visibility and understanding of the trans community. As an aspiring transgender actress, I will have the opportunity to use this platform to advocate for greater acceptance and understanding of us transgender people.
TGG: I can’t wait to see you in the movies! How can we best support you? (Where can we find you on social media? where can we listen to the podcast?)
