Lara Kruger whose real name is Thapelo Lehuleri was born in 1983 in South Africa. She is a South African Fashionista, Social media commentator and radio personality.
Lara Kruger did not study radio and says its God given talent since she is a speaker at heart and her calling has always been in entertainment.
She did reviews of Mzansi Magic’s ‘Our Perfect Wedding’ on her social media and it took you tube with a storm. This landed her a job at Motsweding FM where she presents the Saturday night good time show on Motsweding FM from 9pm until 12pm.
She was born a male but identifies as a female. She says that when she was growing up her family knew she was different and they supported her and loved her.
She told TimesLIVE she had always felt feminine but only fully embraced it while studying cosmetology in college in Pretoria.
“I identify as a woman from a social level. I live my life like a woman on a day-to-day basis. But in terms of my ID, my driver’s licence and matric certificate and all those documentations of life, unfortunately they do still say male because the process [of gender transformation] in our country is not as easy as one may think it is.”
She says that she lives her life as a woman although she do have a penis which doesn’t completely bother her.
