This year TORA Victoria emerged from the shadow this creature had been lurking for decades. All my life I had known I was ambiguous sexually. Since childhood I had been drawn to “girly” things but never identified as gay. At the early days of social media and the humongous potentials of the internet for networking and information gathering, I finally came to the conclusion that I was transgender. For me, Tora Victoria was as much as an art project as a personal outing and recognition of what and who I was and am. T.O.R.A. as the project has now been phrased, is a socio-political art project, the vertices for the SNART project – Tora Victoria is my other Self, my hidden persona, my inner child that could not flourish.
