13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman has come out as transgender woman.
The 29-year-old actress made the revelation in an interview with TIME on Thursday, saying: ‘For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman – a trans woman.’
Speaking with novelist Torrey Peters, Dorfman explained: ‘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 went on. ‘Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy.’
On the hit Netflix show, Dorfman played recurring male character Ryan Shaver, who publishes Hannah Baker’s problems in the school newspaper without her consent.
