“For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman — a trans woman. It’s funny to think about coming out, because I haven’t gone anywhere. I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically. Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out.”
After that, she revealed her pronouns are ‘She/Her’ and her name is Tommy. On her Instagram she revealed,
“i’m especially grateful to every single trans person who walked this path, broke down barriers, and risked their lives to live authentically and radically as themselves before me. thank you to all the trans woman that showed me who i am, how to live, celebrate myself, and take up space in this world.”
