You made some powerful statements about being trans during the show. Was it a relief for you to open up about your emotions or was it rather scary?
It was scary cause the majority of people don’t know what non-binary is and it was actually the first time it was mentioned on a Spanish competition tv show. By the way, If I’m trans, non-binary or feel more femme, I shouldn’t have to say it or need to come out of the closet. Straight people don’t have to explain themselves to anyone either, so why do we need to do that all the time.
Do you feel like you are an example for people because you’re so open about yourself?
I don’t think about that, and I’m very scared of that, to be honest. I’m not a good example to anyone. I’m human; I make mistakes and try to learn from them. I don’t want people to put me on a pedestal because I have days where it’s going to be easy to pull me off of it. If I can be a good example, I’ll take it and I’ll always do my best. I always try to bring a positive message to the table, but that doesn’t mean that I’m telling you that you have to do something. I’m more like, “If you can like it or can take it, that’s perfect because I take advice in my life too, and it helped me out sometimes.”
