My name is Kal (he/him). Two years ago I came out to all my family and friends. A lot has changed in those twenty-four months: a name, a voice, a smile — a perspective, among other things. I like to think who I am has not changed, but more how much of myself I share and how am with others. I’m the same as before, except I’m more honest.
I still carry sadness and find myself still dissatisfied with my form, my state of mind, my living situation. I suppose that means I have more growing to do.
❝ It’s incredible, you know. It feels like a big responsibility. It’s something I’ve taken very much seriously and something I thought about a lot. I’m just excited because I know. Like, growing up I wasn’t able to see someone necesarrily that looked like me, that was from where I was from in a movie. And I’m excited that kids will be able to see that. ❞[about representing the Asian community on Hollywood with her role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a strong powerful woman]
Happy trans day of visibility!! I’m nb and have been identifying that way since I was 13 bc that’s when I found out about it, all my life I didn’t feel like a boy or girl and only called myself a girl/boy bc other people did! I’m v happy I found a label that fits me and I’m very happy for all my trans friends and ppl who support me 💝 they/them
