Kamen Rider Zero-One star Satsuki Nakayama (Naki / Kamen Rider Naki) releases Photo Essay "Asexual" on September 17 where the feelings are expressed and confessed about being Transgender, and Asexual.
Satsuki Nakayama made their Entertainment Industry debut at the age of 13 as a Kids Model for the magazine Pichilemon followed by an acting debut with the drama Chugakusei Nikki. Afterward, Satsuki Nakayama tried to get male roles leading to a 'Genderless' acting career.
Satsuki Nakayama says "I, Satsuki Nakayama am a Transgender. I have played many female roles till now. But it is difficult to get recognized as a woman. I have decided to do an acting career by surpassing the framework of gender". "I usually get asked since I am Transgender, "Does that mean you like Women?". It positively takes this and expresses my self as Asexual".
This is even written on the cover of the photo essay. Asexual means sexuality where you don't feel romantic feelings or sexual desire for anyone.
Satsuki Nakayama continues by saying "I know it is a hated gender even for me. But I want people to know about the Asexual World by expressing them. With that thought, I have decided to Publish this Photo Essay. I wouldn't happier if you consider me as a human - Satsuki Nakayama without thinking about my gender". "I want you to empathize and not understand. I want you to know. I was always scared to push and let people know about 'My Ideal'. But now I have decided to break that. I want to live my life to the fullest without covering my feelings".
A part of the essay has been released to the public.
"I have lied. I like wearing Men's clothes. Everything else is 'Normal'. It's a lie that I have stabbed myself with. From there it continued to corrode me. Even playing a neutral role became painful. If you pursue neutrality, the base will be 'Women'. The Genderless figure which people expected from me couldn't be achieved anymore other than erasing myself. "...... She is a Girl. But she is cool like a Boy" was an added value. I feel uncomfortable when the charm point is "Originally a woman". When I got hurt, I couldn't breathe."
