After speaking with Patricio Manuel, Demi Lovato gets inspired.
In the latest podcast show 4D With Demi Lovato, Lovato spoke with Patricio Manuel, a transgender boxer. Patricio is also the first transgender professional boxer in the US.
“I was so afraid at times of what my career would look like if I wasn’t that super sexy hyper-feminine pop star,” they said. “My career doesn’t matter as much to me now as it does living my truth.”
They added: “I know what it’s like to have your dream feel like it can hold you back, but it’s quite the opposite. Now that I am living my truth, my art has just become that much greater because my art is a reflection of who I am.
“So now that I’m able to be more transparent with the world in who I am, they can see my art better, and they hear it better.”
Later, the ‘Dancing With The Devil’ hitmaker shared a tweet regarding her latest episode of 4D With Demi Lovato. She wrote: “After speaking with @PeanutManuel for this weeks episode of #4DwithDemi, I was completely blown away & left SO inspired! Thank you for sharing your story & journey Patricio… You are helping so many people find ways to live their truth.”
