Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino. He even drives what he calls a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines. Ja Du is part of a small but growing number of people who call themselves transracial. The term once referred only to someone of a one race adopting a child of another, but now it’s becoming associated with someone born of one race who identifies with another. Ja Du says he grew up enjoying Filipino food, events and the overall culture.
