In August 2017 I received death threats on Facebook. My only “crime” was the fact that I was transgender. The person harassing me was a boy living in my home village, who threatened me that if I did not hang myself, he would do it for me. Sadly enough, I did not even feel any remorse over this. By this point in my life, I had been through so much, endured such pain that being hurt for nothing almost felt like the natural state of life. By this time, I had finished my surgeries, received my new documents and been living in Berlin for over a week. I was not out as a trans woman. I could have let this go if I wanted to, it would not have been overly difficult, but for some reason, I was unable to do so. Maybe because of the fact that I had already been living as a woman, which gave me so much self-confidence.

I turned to an organization called TASZ (Hungarian Civil liberties Union), who represented me when we reported the incident to the police. They recommended making a video of the incident, so that other trans people and everyone, who finds themselves in a similar situation, would know that help was available. I participated in awareness-raising campaigns of LGBT organizations, I was featured in various media outlets, and organized community events for trans women. Right now I am working on a zine, which will present and detail the difficulties people have to go through in life as transgender.

önmagára találni. Ebben az időben már Berlinben éltem. A fojtogató magyar közéletből kiszakadva egy olyan befogadó és inspiráló városban találtam magam, ahol a társadalmi problémákat, legyen az a menekült nők vagy a roma lmbtq emberek helyzete, művészeti megközelítéssel hozzák közelebb az emberekhez. Immár nőként, önazonosan, egyre inkább feltörtek a korábban a fürdőszobában megélt művészi ambícióim is. Megszületett a darab ötlete. 2018 tavaszán találkoztam Fátyol Hermina színésznővel, aki elsőként felkarolta az elképzelésem.
