Moreover, her hometown wasn’t an accommodating place to her budding, transgender sexuality. However, her mother was supportive of her after the actress had revealed her true sexual identity to her.
Eventually, the 32-year-old star moved to New York and underwent gender reassignment surgery. But, she faced more challenges as she lost her job at Bloomingdale in New York as she wasn’t allowed to use the women restroom.
