Tommy Dorfman of ’13 Reasons Why’ Clarifies She’s a Transgender Woman

0 5

Tommy Dorfman would like a reintroduction, thank you very much. In a stunning interview with author Torrey Peters for Time, the 13 Reasons Why star clarified that she is a transgender woman and is ready to publicly live her truth and share her transitioning journey with the rest of the world.

“For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman—a trans woman,” Tommy said. But before you think of Tommy’s announcement as a “coming out,” please know that she doesn’t really consider it such. “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.”

Tommy added, “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.”

Tommy initially kept the details of her transition to herself but used Instagram as a way of documenting her life. “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.” Later on, Tommy said the public discourse about her body “began to feel overwhelming,” which led to her opening up about being trans to better control her own narrative.

So what’s next for Tommy? In her own words, she’s “thinking about how I can infuse my trans body into film and television.” Tommy recently wrapped filming for Lena Dunham’s Sharp Stick, her “first role as a girl” which she describes as “so exciting and validating.”

More than anything, Tommy wants to embrace her true self as much as she can now! “All I can do now is look to a future where I am, hopefully, just radically honest. That’s the person I am becoming.”
