Charice Tells Oprah Her Soul Is Male
The singer opens up for Oprah's 'Where Are They Now?' show
Former Glee actress Charice sat down with Oprah Winfrey for OWN's Where Are They Now? series and talked about her sexuality and gender identity.
"I knew when I was 5," the actress — who came out as gay in June of last year — said in the clip. "I was in grade school, and I saw this girl, and I felt different. I didn't know what it was, but I just knew that time, like it felt special. And when I was 10, I was like, 'Oh, that's it. I'm gay.' I found the word."
Winfrey asked the 22-year-old if she has considered "transitioning to become a male." Charice answered, "Not exactly, you know, transitioning to a male male, but basically my soul is, like, male." She continued, "But I'm not going to go through that stage where I'm going to change everything, so, not change my body. I would change this look. Like cut my hair, wear boy clothes and everything. But that's all."
