Rustom Padilla is now legally known as Binibini "BB" Gandanghari and is recognized as a woman.
"BB filed her identity change request—for both her name and gender identity—on August 2016 before the Orange County Courthouse in California," reports Philstar.com.
On Thursday, November 17, BB posted a photo of the Orange Country Courthouse on her Instagram page with the caption: "This is it! And I thought this day would never come."
In the past, BB revealed that she signed documents as BB Gandanghari but sometimes had to add "a.k.a. Rustom Padilla." With the new court ruling, she can now sign legally-binding documents without mentioning her previous male identity.
