The singer, actor and YouTuber whose musical career includes playing Sunshine Corazon on Glee has come out about his transgender identity and name.
Back in 2014, about a year after publicly coming out as a lesbian, Jake Zyrus told Oprah that he had long struggled with his gender identity. He told her that his soul was male, but that he would not transition to be a “male-male.” This week, though, he announced his new name and online presence as Jake.
On Sunday, the Filipino star announced that he will now go by the name Jake Zyrus, a new moniker that reflects his male gender identity.
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the love and respect,” Zyrus captioned an Instagram post that simply bore the words “thank you.” “I love you back and I’m sending peace to everyone.”
The next day, Zyrus ventured further into the social media realm using his new name, tentatively tweeting, “My first tweet as Jake. Overwhelmed. Saw all your love comments and I’m so happy. Finally. I love you, everyone and see you soon.” As an added note, he wrote in a subsequent tweet, “I won’t let anyone ruin this moment. I won’t let anyone ruin my happiness. Thank you to all the beautiful write ups about me.”
