Former Channel V VJ Joey Mead King recently made headlines in the Philippines when news of her husband Ian King’s male-to-female transition broke out in the social media hemisphere. If you haven?t heard yet, Ian King now identifies as a transwoman who goes by the name Angelina Mead King.

For the uninitiated, Joey Mead King is an international model, runway coach, TV and events host, and animal rights advocate. She was born in the Philippines to a Filipino mother and Iranian father. Joey Mead was raised in Southern Australia when her mother moved to Adelaide to live with Joey?s Australian stepfather.

During her younger years, she served as a VJ (video jockey) for music channel Channel [V] in Hong Kong from 1996 to 2000.

In 2007, the former host of Asia?s Next Top Model moved back to the Philippines. Some four years later, Joey Mead married Filipino-Chinese businessman Ian King in 2011.

For those of you who don?t know who he is, Ian King belongs to the family behind the Victoria Court chain of hotels. Ian also happens to be a car enthusiast, or someone who loves cars. Ian turned his passion into a lucrative business venture called for Car Porn Racing, which specializes in creating custom body kits and other automotive enhancements.

Whichever angle you look at it from, love indeed knows no age, no color, no gender. The most important aspect of Angelina Mead King?s transition is the part about her family, friends, and the people who chose to love her and stay by her side.
