She filed the petition for name and gender changes last August in a courthouse in California, USA.
BB Gandanghari took to Instagram to announce that her name and gender changes have been legalized.
Posting a picture of the Orange County Courthouse in California, USA, BB captioned it with, “This is it! And I thought this day would never come. And I thank my GOD and my LORD for making these things happen. Everything makes sense now... and to this great country the United States of America for providing this #basicrhumanright... Thank you!!! ?????? #officiallyBBlegallyGandanghari”
Last August, BB, who came out as a transgender woman in 2009, filed a petition to change her name Rustom Padilla to Binibini Gandanghari, as well as her gender from male to female.
