During International Transgender Awareness Week, The Revolución invites writer and activist Meredith Talusan, a native of the Phillipines who lives with albinism. Talusan moved to the United States at 15, went to Harvard for undergraduate studies and medically transitioned in her twenties. Talusan is the founding editor of THEM, Condé Nast's first-ever platform devoted to the queer community. She has written for the New York Times, VICE, Buzzfeed, The Guardian and The Atlantic. In this interview, Talusan talks about her life growing up as a boy in a rural Asian family, her move to the United States, how she became a writer, and her new book, FAIREST (Viking Press, 2020).
