Member of Parliament of the 15th Legislature during the Prodi government, she was the first transgender person to be elected to the parliament of a European state. She promoted and was the first to sign the bill of law on transgender rights, and has been committed to LGBT+ rights for many years with the Circolo di Cultura Omosessuale Mario Mieli, where she has served as artistic director since 1993. During this time she was responsible for creating the renowned Muccassassina event, which today still represents a cult event for LGBT+ friendly nightlife in the Capital, and which over the years has hosted international artists of the caliber of David LaChapelle, Grace Jones, Rupert Everett and Alexander McQueen. In July 2012 she gave a talk at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit, an international debate on employment organised in London by OUT and EQUAL, a US organisation engaged in securing workplace equality for the LGBT community. An undisputed commentator on major newspapers and the most important national television programs, she has also written novels and was awarded the Premio Margutta for literature in 2011.
