Lea T is undergoing hormone replacement therapy in preparation for a full sex-change.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
On taking hormones:
‘It’s really difficult because you fight with all the world. You fight with your family. You fight with yourself too,’ she said. ‘You have to change everything in yourself….When you start the hormones, it’s really, really hard. It’s not a game. Your body starts to change in a short time,’ she said. The skin is changed a lot. The cheek bones grow. The hair, it becomes super long. The hips become bigger.

‘I was hoping I was gay,’ she said. ‘Because, for my family, it would be less painful. And then I could… have a normal life. I wish I could accept my body like men.

But it’s something in your brain – born in the wrong body,’ she added.
On the support from her Catholic parents:

On when her father (a former Brazilian football star) saw her on the runway
‘He saw me in the show, and he said: ‘Now I can die happy because I’m so proud of her.”‘
On being nervous about the physical and emotional pain after the surgery:
Of course physically, this operation is a big operation. But at the same time, I think it’s mental too. To think like: “Wow, I cut part of my body
