Special message from Miriam to her fans

I just want to thank everyone for sending in so many emails straight after the show finished. Don't worry about me!

The boys are the ones that have lost out, they lost out on a week with me!!!!

It's all just TV.

What is much more important than a gang of insecure boys "rejecting" me, are all of the issues that this series has brought into the mainstream. Can you believe it - now transsexualism is so much more accepted, normalized. The wonderful people in Britain seem to love me, and I am getting mail from all over the world. And that means the message that we are all the same only making different choices is getting through on such a massive scale. When Tom said that I deceived him, he should have a look at how everyone was deceiving each other. When the boys were with me they were gentlemen, when they were together they were completely different. I liked Tom and feel sorry that he felt the way he did - I think that peer pressure was obvious, but then, hey they had to make that big TV moment!

That day was the most frightening in my life. I was so nervous. I nearly died of fright. No one knew what was going to happen. But then after the boys got angry I went off down the beach. I found a beautiful guy and we had a beautiful time together that afternoon. He didn't have any problems!

I have known a lot of wonderful men in my life, I have beautiful friends, and a caring family. I am lucky! I have got to show what I really am to the whole world and I have been accepted. It seems that everyone except the boys feel positive about me and what I am. Is that not a little world changing thing to happen?

I am in Cannes at the moment writing this. Tomorrow we meet people from all over the world who want to broadcast the series. Then there is a party and I am going to give an award to the guy who invented Big Brother.

Tolerance and transcendence. This is the motto for me in these times of prejudice, violence, fear.

Evolution not revolution.

Evolve and survive.

Be hybrid. Be fluid. Blur the boundaries that keep us apart and keep us from what we really truly are.

Never give in.


All my love to everyone. Let's see what Miriam Chapter 2 is going to be!

Please be polite if you email Miriam

Miriam has answered 55 emails on the letters page so far. She enjoys reading your emails. Especially emails that contain a few compliments, share something about your own story, or ask for her opinion on a given subject.

There are a few things that could get your email discarded though, or could get a terse response from Miriam. It is very nice of her to take the time to answer the email she can, so you don't want her to get frustrated and stop reading them do you? Please don't email her if your message falls into the categories below:

1-Requests for her to meet you in person, or to see if she might want to be your girlfriend. This is a fan web site, not Miriam's personals column.

2-Questions about her sexual organs, her sex life, or questions asking whether she has ever posed fully nude before. That is just plain rude.

3-People who need to reprimand her for participating in the show and "exploiting those poor boys". She has heard it all before and doesn't need to hear it again.

These are mostly common sense, but she has gotten several of all three types.

More email replies from Miriam

I'm working on putting together an FAQ type of page to organize some of Miriam's responses by subject, but in the mean time, wanted to share this:

I am busy completing my music. This is my first love. The show has allowed me to be taken seriously by the music industry who were worried before about who will buy my music. Now they all want a piece of the action, so I am planning the next move with my management. Apart from that I am taking some time off in New York because the promotional tour in London was so hectic and we are all taking stock of what has happened and what to do next. I have had some film and TV offers, but need to be choosy.

I'm so lucky that I can hopefully succeed in the world of entertainment and keep true to myself. Its going to be a lot of hard work but I'm ready for it!

People are always scared of "the new", of things they don't understand. But things change as society incorporates the fringes. Especially if they realize they can make money out of it! Just look at Will and Grace, who would have believed a gay sit com would be on US TV.

New fan mail replies from Miriam

I know she can not reply to every letter, but it looks like Miriam is doing her best. Thirty seven responses and counting. Just uploaded a dozen more to the letters page. Here is one of the letters, with her reply:

Hi Miriam,

I'm a big fan of the show and have really enjoyed what has been shown so far and the articles you have done in The Sun, how did you first become involved in the TV project? Did SkyOne seek you out or did your agent approach them??? How did it all come about?

And do you think that transexuals should be allowed to begin hormone treatment at the same age as you did? You're living proof that the results can be stunning if the transition begins at or before puberty!




Everyone is different. i cannot advocate that people take hormones so young. I can only say that for me I just had to!

The producers approached my agent because they had heard of my work in music. I saw the script and thought it was a great way to show what people like me go through, and also to pose the question "what's love all about anyway?!"

More details about the documentary

From the Endemol UK website:

Sky One has commissioned Brighter Pictures for one-hour documentary about the star of their forthcoming reality series - There’s Something About Miriam.

There’s Something Else About Miriam tells the real story behind the pre-op transsexual who has been at the centre of an international media furore.

The documentary follows her life from childhood days in Mexico to moving to New York and being catapulted into stardom.

Drawing on her past experiences and interviews with family and friends There’s Something Else About Miriam reveals the difficulties she faced growing up, how she gained acceptance and how she now plans to launch herself into pop stardom.

The programme will also feature expert analysis from psychologists and trans-gender specialists looking at the issues surrounding Sky One’s forthcoming reality series and why male and female members of the press and public may react differently towards it.

Brighter’s Managing Director Gavin Hay comments: ‘Miriam’s story is a moving and inspiring one. After the media frenzy surrounding the Sky One series people will be fascinated to see her telling it like it really is’.

There’s Something Else About Miriam will follow Brighter Pictures’ forthcoming reality series There’s Something About Miriam, which starts on Sunday 22nd February on Sky One.

Executive Producers: Gavin Hay and Remy Blumenfeld

Producer / Director: Christine Clarke

Radio One exclusive of her new single

Just received the following from Miriam's management:


Miriam is the transsexual sensation who seduced 6 unsuspecting alpha males in the Sky One series "There's Something About Miriam".

Radio One have been badgering Miriam for a taste of her forth coming single release. She is currently finishing off the track in Harlem, New York, working with a mental underground dance producer Helicopter Jackson.

Miriam has relented and given radio one the exclusive first airing of this eagerly awaited track on the Scott Mills show on Sunday 14th March will be followed by a live radio interview with Miriam in New York.

The song is cheekily titled "Don't fall in love with me". Miriam says "This is not some pop idol shit. I'm a clubbing girl and this song has come from the underground. I was doing this long before the series".

The track has been clouded in secrecy, but news of it has leaked. Release dates are still under wraps but her management have confirmed that it will be hitting the dance floor in a couple of weeks.

Her management said:

"While the boys in the show are off spending their pay off on sports cars or whatever, Miriam has been hard at work doing what she loves. She's been holed up in a spooky Harlem recording studio with a crazed dance producer and they have created something truly origional. The song is a bit of a two finger to the boys. One of the lines is - "don't fall in love with me just to get on tv". I think that says it all . She loved the boys in the show and wishes them no ill, but she has no time for a bunch of cry babies. As far as Miriam is concerned - lock up your sons - you haven't seen anything yet!".

3 In 4 Would Never Have Suspected

Finally, the results have been announced to a poll conducted by the Sky One website. Out of 5,000+ votes, three quarters have admitted that Miriam would have completely fooled them. A further 16% weren't sure and decided upon a 'maybe' and just 12% believed that they would have guessed Miriams secret.

Miriam has become a paparazzi favourite since arriving in the UK - but is sick of snappers who "try and put their cameras up your skirt".

Miriam has been likened to Jennifer Lopez and Catherine Zeta-Jones but says she doesn't try to be like anyone else - "although I know I'm sexier than Victoria Beckham"!

Miriam beat both Victoria Beckham and Catherine Zeta-Jones in FHM’s list of 100 top babes.

Don't Fall In Love With Me

From the March 4, 2004 edition of the Sun:

Miriam is set to hit the charts — with a dance track cheekily called Don’t Fall In Love With Me.

The sexy gender-bender — who tricked six lads into thinking she was a girl on Sky One reality show There’s Something About Miriam — is recording the single in New York.

Miriam, 22, said: “I’m a clubbing girl and this song is from the clubbing underground.”
