Filipa Gonçalves vai lançar um livro em Novembro (Global Notícias, sexta-feira, 9 de Maio de 2008)
As atenções de Filipa Gonçalves estão concentradas na edição de um livro escrito pela própria manequim. Sobre a primeira aventura no mundo literário, a filha de Nené ainda não quis revelar muitos pormenores, para manter o suspense até à data de lançamento, que deverá ser em Novembro.
"Vai ser um livro surpreendente. Vão poder conhecer uma Filipa Gonçalves diferente, porque há mais que uma imagem. Quando lerem o livro vão ficar a conhecer-me melhor", assegurou ao 24 Horas. Filipa, apesar de ter guardado o projecto no segredo dos deuses, não resistiu a contar que o livro vai ser um romance: "vai ser um romance verdadeiro, onde falo do amor da minha vida".

A Shaky Performance on Corrections
Excerpt: Several readers said Araujo wasn't gay, that he was transgender, and though he was biologically male, he identified as a female who was attracted to men. Vargas said he felt that Araujo fell "under the gay umbrella," and his editor, Lynne Duke, agreed.
A half dozen experts from the American Psychological Association disagreed. Ritch Savin-Williams, chairman of the Human Development Department at Cornell University, said, "The Post would be inaccurate to necessarily call [Araujo] gay. The crucial issue is that, as a woman, she could be either gay or heterosexual. If she's attracted to men, she's heterosexual."
Michael Hendricks, a District psychologist and researcher, said: "This is a distinct difference between gender and sexual orientation. They are independent of each other. Just because someone is transgender doesn't mean someone is gay."
At least a clarification should have run on this issue.
