A Diva in the Making

Chanel Dita wants to champion transgender rights. But first, she's got a date with Jerry Springer.

But for her last name, she just didn't know. Cristan offered a name book. After perusing the pages, the teen still couldn't make up her mind.

Finally Cristan dumped several names into an upturned black hat. Pick one, she said.

The young woman pulled one scrap of paper out, unfolded it and said, "Yuck."

She tried again. "Faye," the piece of paper said. Cristan said it had something to do with fairies. The 19-year-old said she liked that.

So on a rainy afternoon, sitting in her friend's home with her belongings wedged between the back of an armchair and a wall, Janet Dita Faye was born, fully grown.
