13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman has announced that she is "thrilled to reintroduce" herself as a trans woman.
In a recent interview with Time, she said that she'd been "privately identifying and living as a woman" for the past 12 months.
"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. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy."
Describing transitioning as "beautiful", Tommy shared that she wanted to use her Instagram as a "diaristic time capsule", showing "a body living in a more fluid space".
"It is not transition," she continued. "Or it is, but not as an idea of going somewhere. Just that I am actually myself."
Reiterating this on Instagram today (July 22), Tommy also wrote: "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 women that showed me who [I] am, how to live, celebrate myself, and take up space in this world."
