Camila recently posted a photo on her Instagram with Camila Joe, a transgender Harmonizer she met last year. Camila Joe had told the singer she gave her the courage to transition. Her name was Joey at the time, but her new name is a nod to the woman who she looks up to.
the stunning, confident, magical woman standing next to me is named Camila Joe. I met her during a signing last year when her name was "Joey" and she told me I inspired her to have the courage to transition. And right before my eyes, today I saw a beautiful, confident woman (with IMMACULATE EYELINER by the way). She told me she was going to go by the name of Camila Joe and I kinda lost it with excitement. I don't know your Twitter but I just wanted to say how proud I am of you. There's a light in someone's eyes when they become who they want to be. Today you lit up the whole room. i love you darlin. WORK THAT POSE.
“She told me she was going to go by the name of Camila Joe and I kinda lost it with excitement,” Camila wrote on Instagram. “I don’t know your Twitter but I just wanted to say how proud I am of you.”
She also applauded Camila Joe on being true to herself.
“There’s a light in someone’s eyes when they become who they want to be," she wrote in the caption. "Today you lit up the whole room."
With these two, twice the Camila means twice the fierceness.
