Interview with a transgender elder

Vicky Estrada, a 64 year-old transgender woman, has become a cultural leader in San Diego. In an interview, she talks about her relationship with her family and her community, as she reveals to others the person she has always been. “Probably I first felt like this when I was ten years-old. But I didn’t tell anybody until I was—my gosh—fifty years-old… [Before] there was always this sadness inside of me. That’s gone away.” See the video from Media Arts Center San Diego.
