I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I've been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place.” ALSO READ: Juno Star Ellen Page Comes Out As Transgender; Filmmaker Apurva Asrani Trashes Haters, 'It's None Of Our Business, It's His Body And His Soul'
