Just last week, BB Gandanghari posted a two-part open letter on her Instagram account sharing the difficulties she encountered while pursuing her dream of becoming a Hollywood actress. As a transwoman struggling to make it in Hollywood, she shared how she experienced discrimination in all aspects of her journey. BB also narrated how she had to work two jobs just to pay her bills, even moonlighting as an Uber driver to make ends meet. On top of all her problems, she was told by her talent agency that her headshots needed to be updated if she wanted to continue going on auditions. Now, one week later, BB posted another update on her Hollywood journey, sharing a video of her newest headshots!
BB Gandanghari looked stunning in her photos! The video she shared contained several photos of herself dressed as different characters. The aspiring Hollywood actress dressed as Inspector Gadget, as a career woman, as a street fighter, as an alien, and as a ‘Fur Mommy’, among others. BB was visibly more confident in her own skin, striking different poses for her different characters.
Netizens commented on her post to express their support for the Hollywood aspirant, wishing her luck and happiness in her endeavor. Some of them said they know how hard life has been for BB because of the things she said in her open letter, and commended her for still pursuing her dreams despite everything that has happened.
In her first letter, BB wrote:
“Physical, social, physiological, psychological, financial and professional insecurities was slowly becoming me. As I try with all my might to overcome these limitations, I am in the realization that I gotta have my headshot soonest or go home or… broke. Talking about pressure with the capital P… to be continued…”
The actress admitted that she kept pushing her deadline to achieve her dream because of her insecurities. However, she knew she had to take concrete steps if she wanted to make it.
In her second letter, BB thanked her family, friends, and supporters who never left her side throughout her whole journey. She ended her letter on a hopeful and optimistic note, saying she can finally see “the light at the end of this long and dark tunnel.”
