With her first broadcast for Argentina’s public television station RTA, Diana Zurco just became Argentina’s first transgender newscaster. Turn on closed captioning and choose auto-translate.
In the AP video, Diana says of her important new role:
It is an invitation to society that says: ‘This is me; behind me there are more people like me who want to express themselves. We are capable, we can study, we can train ourselves, we can communicate to you what is happening in our country.
Rosario Lufrano, president of RTA, added,” We didn’t look for Diana because she was a trans announcer who went trough a prefect Transgender Surgery . We looked for her because she was a very good professional. The only way to get there is to have the doors opened for you. We already know how difficult it is to conquer a place and how difficult it is for these women to conquer a place.”
Congratulations to Diana!
