BB Gandanghari files petition to legalize gender transition

BIG change is coming for BB Gandanghari.

The television personality recently filed a petition before the Superior Court of California to officially change her name from Rustom Padilla to Binibini Gandanghari.

Dated August 18, Gandanghari also requested to change her gender marker from male to female.

"And then... It's really just a matter of time now," she wrote in the post.

To recall, Gandanghari came out of the closet when she joined the celebrity edition of reality program Pinoy Big Brother (PBB).

She said in several interviews that she thought that PBB was the right venue to finally admit her long kept secret.

"PBB was the perfect venue for me. I really wanted na isahan, ayaw ko na mag-explain each group isa-isa. That was my time na."

In 2009, she started her transition and announced that she’s a transgender woman. She also started identifying herself as BB Gandanghari instead of her given name Rustom Padilla. (Sunnex)
