"My name is Daniel Mariblanca and I am a Transgender person.
I was born in Barcelona,Spain, 35 years ago.
My transition started some years ago. I am a dancer. It felt so liberated to
come out and open my heart to all of those that surrounded me.
I did it because i could not lie to myself any more. I had a lot of doubts and fears about coming out.
To be discriminated against, to be refused by my family, my partner or my friends. I had fear that i could lose
my job. I was questioning if this would affect my career.
I was concerned about how me coming out would affect my future.
Yet, I did it."
The team is changing along with the projects, but the essence contains of Daniel Mariblanca, Ursula Kaufmann and Camilla Svingen.
