Rebecca De Havalland
Rebecca is an Irish trans woman, makeup artist and model agent. She has written a book about her life, His Name Is Rebecca, and was the subject of a ‘Would You Believe?’ documentary in Ireland.

Here she talks frankly to the HIV Conversations about her sexual abuse as a child, rising to celebrity status across Dublin and London in the 80s, marrying at 22 and fathering a child, then her fall into alcohol abuse, heroin and crack addiction, before being diagnosed HIV positive: twice. Her life is a rollercoaster plummeting from glamour-filled highs to the coldest depths, but ultimately is a tale of resilience and hope.
