Tommy Dorfman has made the world known that she is a trans woman.
Speaking to TIME Magazine, the 13 Reasons Why star got candid about her transition.
"For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman—a trans woman," Tommy shared.
"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," she continued.
"Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy.
"I've been living in this other version of coming out where I don't feel safe enough to talk about it, so I just do it. But I recognize that transitioning is beautiful. Why not let the world see what that looks like?
"So, I kept, on Instagram, a diaristic time capsule instead. One that shows a body living in a more fluid space."
