Filipino transgender fashion model Sabel Gonzales tells touching story in a documentary style advertisement for I Am Vodka. In this ad Gonzales talks about the struggle of her transformation from losing friends and family to the financial burden. Gonzales is now standing in her own skin proud to be who she is. "Normal to me is to live and be who you are and what you are" Gonzales states. She goes on to say, "I don't care about people and what they say, because I have my family, I have my friends who will accept me and respect me for being who I am".
I Am Vodka has started a campaign #thepriceofbeingme.
