Jamaican born Romario Wanliss – a storytelling Creative Director and Speaker more affectionately known as MrBlackBranson (The love child of Will Smith and Richard Branson) has had one mission in life – #ShareAStorySaveALife. A storyteller at heart, MrBlackBranson mainly shares powerful heartfelt stories through public speaking, documentaries or creating music and poetry inspiring the ‘invalidated’ of society.

 Watch ‘Transgender: Back to Jamaica’ produced by NewsBeat’s Declan Harvey and Karlene Pinnock, then read about my experience by clicking here. 
2011 could have been the year Romario Wanliss took his own life to suicide, instead, he took life in his own hands.

“..after many years of pain, invalidation, anxiety and sucidal thoughts – I had no choice but to live. I realised others did not get as far as me. Surely there was something to be said about my strength, if I could share that story- I hope others would not feel pain for long – they would find a reason to live. Hence my motto Share A Story Save A Life.”

Today PureGender, an online platform mainly providing products for the members of the transgender* community whom may experience great dysphoria is one of his main entrepreneurial adventures.
*Transgender is an umbrella term used to describe Transsexual men/women, gender queer people and any other gender variate person whom wish to change from the physical sex they were born as.
