Melody on the red couch in her salon. Melody is Filipino, and has lived in East Timor since 2002. One of the reasons why she left the Philippines is her father never accepted her way of being and used to beat her up. She is 33 Years old and works in her beauty salon during the day and as a waiter at night. When she was living in both the Philippines and Malaysia she was able to dress up more often as a woman, but due to social pressures within East Timor, she can only do it at night during parties with like-minded or understanding friends. Her boyfriend of 8 months is a married man with 2 children who visits her on Sundays. Melody's dream is to have gender reassignment surgery.
