Audrey Mbugua, the much talked about Kenyan transgender is a beautiful woman.
The activist, who has always been on the forefront to fight for the rights of transgender people, has been involved in legal actions in the High Court quite a number of times.
Recently she won a case against Kenya National Examinations Council after the court upheld a decision compelling them to change her academic certificates to reflect ‘her’ new identity.
Audrey is known for her beauty and she beats most slayers 10 nil when it comes to dressing. Below are her latest photos taken by our hawk eyed photographer Ezekiel Aminga.
The transgender community in Kenya goes through several challenges anong them discrimination and stigma.
Not so long ago, transgender Letoya revealed that his life was in danger. In a lengthy post she wrote,
WHEN PEOPLE CHOOSE TO BREAK YOU ,
THEY FIND POWER THAT CAN RECIPROCATE THEIR OWN EMPTINESS.
SOMETIMES I SEE YOUTHS WANTING TO BE ME BUT WHAT THEY HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT IS THE THINGS I HAVE TO ENDURE FOR ME TO THRIVE.
I HAVE BEEN CUT OPEN MANY TIMES,
AND SOMETIMES I BLEED ON THOSE WHO NEVER CUT ME ,
THOSE ARE LIKE SHATTERED MIRRORS.
I HAVE BEEN BLAMED AND SUSPECTED ,
I HAVE BEEN PUT THROUGH EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL ABUSE UNTIL I ALMOST TOOK MY OWN LIFE AWAY..
I HAVE LOST DIGNITY AND WORKED UNDER HIGH POWERED HYPOCRITICAL SITUATIONS. THE THINGS WE DO FOR A DOLLAR ARE WORSE THAN A SEWER .
JUST PRAY YOU ARE YOU :
I AM WAY TOO DAMAGED THAT I WOULD NEVER WISHED ANY CHILD TO BE ME. DO YOU EVEN HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT I HAVE TO GO THROUGH TO GET PAID ?
HAVE YOU EVER RECEIVED MONEY BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT , ALL YOU SEE IS THE PAIN AND HUMILIATION YOU HAD TO ENDURE; NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY THEY SAY MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING.
TRY TO CRY UNDER WATER AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN. IT IS EXHAUSTING AND CHOCKING.
ALL THESE BEAUTY YOU PEOPLE GET TO APPRECIATE I DON’T EVEN SEE.
