Meet Angelina Mead King: Transgender Businesswoman And A Fashion Icon
In her exclusive interview with HerStyleAsia, transgender businesswoman Angelina Mead King pours her heart out about life, work, and her newest love
When you first meet the soft-spoken and demure Angelina Mead King, you can be fooled into thinking that she comes from nobility. After all, she is a gorgeous woman with a strong head on her shoulders, unabashed and unafraid to speak her mind. She can only come from a place of complete self-awareness, you might think.
But that isn't the story of Filipino transgender icon, Angelina Mead King.
She may have been unabashed and unafraid to speak her mind when she was Ian King, the famous Filipino businessman. But when Ian came out to become Angelina Mead King in 2016, there was a lot of soul searching and reinforcement of self-confidence.
"The girl in me has been in my thoughts since I can remember, its only with the internet I learned the word transgender. I didn’t know there were so many others like me online," shares Angelina Mead King in an exclusive interview with HerStyleAsia.
How Angelina Mead King Became A Transgender Icon
Today, after almost six years since Ian became Angelina, King is perhaps one of the biggest names in the Pinoy transgender community. She is paving the way for others to come forward and live their truth.
And not just that she is also quickly becoming a fashionable force to reckon with. With the support of her friends and family, King has been making inroads in the fashion industry. Her latest stint being the Tecknomonster bags.
"I partnered with Tecknomonster bags because I love carbon fiber and the style really appealed to me. I am now the distributor for Manila and California," shares King, Car Porn racing owner.
