Transman PBB housemate Jesi Corcuera admits undergoing surgery



Jesi Corcuera, one of the regular housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, admitted undergoing surgery as he made the transition to becoming a transman.

When the former StarStruck contestant entered PBB Lucky Season 7 last night, November 5, Jesi disclosed details about his backgroud.

The 25-year-old reality show contestant hails from Bacoor, Cavite.

"Isa akong transman. Pinanganak akong babae pero nung nagkakaroon na ko ng pag-iisip, yung pakiramdam ko hindi naaayon sa pagkatao ko," said Jesi in a video interview.

"Si Mama tutol siya nung umpisa pero hindi rin natupad yung gusto niyang mangyari sa akin. Siyempre wala namang magulang na hindi tatanggap sa anak. Naging masaya na lang siya para sa akin. Sinuportahan niya ako."

He tried his luck in the past by joining GMA-7's artista search.

"Sumali ako sa isang reality show pero hindi nag-click."

Jesi then revealed, "Nagpasurgery ako noong 2013."

By joining this reality show, Jesi is advocating for gender equality.

"Ang pagiging isang mabuting tao, hindi nakabase sa sexualidad o kung anumang kasarian.  

"Para maging mabuti ka, kailangan ipakita na pantay-pantay.

"Gusto kong i-spread sa lahat yung equality.

"Hindi mo kailangang tingnan ang kasarian ng tao kung gusto mo man siyang kilalanin, lahat yan dapat pantay-pantay."

Jesi was briefly interviewed by PBB host Robi Domingo before entering the PBB house.

When asked to define a transman, Jesi explained, "Basically, ang transman pinanganak na babae pero puso at isip niya, lalaki siya na nag-undergo ng HRT o hormone replacement therapy. Then nag-undergo ng transplant or surgery."

After saying goodbye to his mother, Jesi was blindfolded and ushered into the PBB house.
