Model and activist Geena Rocero left many shocked after she revealed at a TED Talk last week that she was born a male. Rocero then announced the launch of Gender Proud, a campaign aimed at bringing awareness to the fact that only a few countries allow transgender people to update the gender on their legal documentation without first having to undergo forced sterilization or genital surgery.

Having legal documentation that doesn't match one's appearance can be a major source of anxiety for transgender individuals and opens the door for discrimination.

Rocero is probably best known as the woman who stars alongside The Weeknd in the super trippy music video for his song "The Knowing."
