She revealed in an interview that she has been ‘privately identifying and living as a woman’ for almost a year.

Tommy recently said transitioning was like going through a ‘second puberty’ after privately embarking on her ‘medical’ transition during the coronavirus quarantine.

Speaking to InStyle last month, the star said: ‘It’s puberty as an adult if you do it at my age — it’s a second puberty.’

The journey was new for Tommy, who said: ‘I also had never seen a body in transition before, and I think that’s a scary thing as a trans person.’  

‘It’s kind of alien, and it’s incredibly autonomous,’ she went on.

‘It’s puberty as an adult if you do it at my age — it’s a second puberty,’ Tommy remarked, adding that ‘I think you’re supposed to go through puberty at an age when you don’t remember it because it hurts.’

‘It’s body-aching and emotionally wonky. But I had an opportunity to be of service. And for the most part, putting it into my work.’  

The star said she ‘only’ takes supplemental hormones and did not mention undergoing any surgery.

While many in the transgender community take hormones or undergo surgery to reduce feelings of gender dysphoria – the feeling arising from having mismatched biological sex and gender identity – the decision to medically transition is a personal choice, and is in now way required for trans people, according to GLAAD.

For Tommy, the new hormone treatments changed her life.  

‘I just switched my hormones, and I’ve never felt better in my life,’ she said.

‘I spent 28 years of my life suicidal and depressed and recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction,’ she explained.
