The Secret of Tomorrow

Is to Live Your Dreams Today.

 

By Diamond Starr

I consider myself to be heterosexual. I've haven't dated a Gay man since living

Diamond StarMy birth name is Danny Lynn Green. I was born September 14, 1964 in Grenada, Mississippi and as far back as I can remember I was always a girl. I realized I was different around the age of three when I tried to cut off my penis because none of the other little girls had one.

At the age of twelve I started to live as a female. That caused a lot of problems at home and my parents put me out.

I'm much happier now because I live my life as a female and have been doing so for the past fifteen years full-time. My [sex-change] operation is scheduled for next year and I'm really looking forward to it.

I really haven't experienced a lot of discrimination in my life. My biggest problem has been with the Gay Community. It was really hard to believe that so few accepted Transsexuals.

I consider myself to be heterosexual. I've haven't dated a Gay man since living full-time [as a woman]. I date straight men and I'm honest with them about my life and where I am in my process. Most of them don't mind because of my honesty. At the present time I'm single.

My life was touch-and-go for a while--I'm living with AIDS and a recovering addict--but I'm back and ready to take the world by storm. I've been entertaining since I was a child.

I did my first fashion show at age seven and wrote my first play for church at the age of twelve. I incorporated my business and now I'm CEO and President of Diamond Starr Entertainment, a special events company in South Florida. We put together parties, network socials, pageants, fashion shows, workshops and produce the event "Activate Your Mind."

The motto I live by is, "The secret of tomorrow is to live your dreams today."

I wouldn't change anything that has happened to me in the past because it has made me a better person today. If I could give anyone advice it would be: live your life to the fullest and never use the word "Can't."
