Tommy Dorfman, star of 13 Reasons Why, just revealed that she is a transgender woman in an interview. Dorfman is most recognised for his role as Ryan Shaver, a student at Liberty High School, in the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why (2017–2020). She was a recurring character in the first two seasons and then returned as a guest in season four.
She has also worked in the fashion sector and debuted on stage in The New Group’s production of Daddy (Jeremy O. Harris) since 13 Reasons Why. She developed a collection for ASOS in 2017 and is known for her distinct voice, which she constantly flaunts on social media. Dorfman’s Instagram style has evolved over time, resulting in a slew of speculation, which Tommy also addressed in her interview.
Tommy Dorfman As A Transwomen
Tommy Dorfman revealed she was transsexual in an interview with Torrey Peters for TIME magazine on July 22, 2021. She revealed that she had been living in secret as a transgender woman, but that she was now reintroducing herself to the world after undergoing medical treatment. She kept an online record of her transition over the course of the year on her social media site.
Hundreds of proposals have been introduced in the United States to limit the rights of members of the LGBTQ+ community, notably younger transgender people. These anti-trans laws send a terrible message to all LGBTQ+ people, depriving them of their rights to participate in sports and obtain good health care, as well as preventing critical gender identity education.
Tommy Dorfman recognises that transgender individuals are among the most marginalised in society and pushes for activism to safeguard their lives, encouraging everyone to educate themselves.
Transgender celebrities serve as a rallying point for others to rally for freedom, equality, and authenticity, and the more people who become fully themselves, the more powerful the battle against injustice and discrimination becomes.
