Coming Out As Trans

I’ve been slowly transitioning in secret and I waited until I was ready to tell you all. – Abigail Thorn

I am a long time fan of Philosophy Tube on YouTube. It was hosted by a character named Oliver Thorn.

Well, this week the creator came out as trans. Her name is Abigail. Oliver was a character she played, as she was “slowly transitioning in secret.”

By coming out, Abigail is now one of the most recognized faces of trans people in the United Kingdom. All her legal documents now identify her as female.

Until I watched her video, I did not know how backward the United Kingdom still is. They may be progressive in healthcare, the environment, but not on transgender rights.

Of course, my country is not much better. The United States just went through four years of constant attack on LBGTQ+ rights under a fascist administration.
