“Being a woman is a gift and I have gifted myself a vagina.Three years ago I was a male model. I was on a Men’s cover magazine. Then I did a show with MTV as a male model. I had 8 pack abs, 16-inch biceps. I was a fit model… I still feel nervous because I have broad shoulders, broad arms. I am growing into a woman and I am loving it. I am becoming feminine day by day.” quotes Gauri Arora was formerly known as Gaurav Arora – Model, and ex-participant of Splitsvilla Season 8.
Only last year did Gaurav undergo a sex operation and is still in the process of transforming himself into a complete woman. He was one of the very few people who confessed to being a bisexual on record.
Having transformed into a woman now, Gauri Arora is ready for a comeback as a participant on India’s Next Top Model Season 3.
She spoke about what made her take this big step, and how supportive her parents were, which is how Gauri won the hearts of judges Milind Soman, Malaika Arora, Dabboo Ratnani and Neeraj Gaba.
“I felt extremely beautiful. I was a tad apprehensive about the fact that I had to put on a bikini and walk down the ramp in front of seasoned judges but that only made my resolve stronger. It takes a lot of courage to accept the reality and come out in public. A lot of people out there already know about my struggle. I hope my stint on the show gives courage to a lot of people,” Gauri told Mumbai Mirror about the show.
Well Gauri, we wish you all the luck and happiness. May you embrace womanhood and inspire other people out there.
