Ice Seguerra goes through transition phase for sexual reassignment surgery
Ice Seguerra reveals he is currently in the transition period preparatory to sexual reassignment surgery.
Seguerra spoke lengthily about her forthcoming SRS during an interview in the June 21 episode of evening talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda.”
Abunda asked Seguerra if he ever considered undergoing surgery.
“Nung una nandun din ako sa parang why? bakit kailangan? pero alam mo Tito Boy, sometimes, especially nung nag come out na ako as trans, it’s so hard to wake up every day seeing that you’re in this body. Then alam mo yung pakiramdam na di naman eto dapat yun,” said Seguerra.
(At first I asked, ‘Is it really needed?’ But you know Tito Boy, sometimes, especially when I came out as trans, it’s so hard to wake up every day seeing that you’re in this body. Then you know that feeling that this isn’t how it’s supposed to be.)
He continued, “Sinabi ko yun sa wife ko before. Kasi nung una parang di nya rin magets eh parang for her, ‘Tinatanggap naman kita eh, for me you’re a man.’ But it’s not about that. I mean I thank you for accepting me. but the problem is me accepting me.”
(I told this to my wife before. At first she couldn’t get it either. She’d say, ‘But I accept you for who you are. For me you’re a man.’ But it’s not about that. I mean thank you for accepting me, but the problem is me accepting me.)
Seguerra later explained he was now at the transition period where he’s undergoing hormone replacement. He expressed concern about how his voice would change with the hormone treatment, considering it was his way of providing for his family.
“I’m just happy the first gender diversity center opened so at least may doctors na to talk to about this,” said the singer.
Ice Seguerra, formerly Aiza Seguerra, came out as a transgender man in August 2014. /ra
