Angel Flores’s Transition Story

At a very young age, she knew about her gender. She shared that when she was six years old, she wanted to wear a big sleep shirt over her underwear so she could be “just like her mom”.

She said,

“I was enamored with sapphic relationships on the screen, and I spent all of my time as a teenager convinced I was gay, despite barely even kissing a boy. For reasons I generally couldn’t explain, I had a streak of seeing queer women, a couple of which exclusively dated girls. “

When she was in college, Angel even tweeted and then deleted that “I wish they made sports bras for men, I would rock that sh*t”. In August 2019, she put on a sports bra and tiny shorts for the first time, and during that time, she smiled so much that her face hurt.

At the age of 21, she started her hormone replacement therapy in July 2020.
