The copy surrounding her photos — which can be read in the article above, the thing I famously read Playboy for — discusses her coming out and her realizing she is transgender, with her saying.

“I lived a long time without saying I was transgender… I dated a lot and almost forgot. I was scared of never finding a boyfriend and being seen as weird. Then I was like, You know, you should just be who you are. It’s a salvation to speak the truth about yourself, whether it’s your gender, sexuality, whatever. The people who reject you aren’t worth it. It’s not about being loved by others; it’s about loving yourself.”

It’s additionally significant that Playboy, which is frequently given kudos for likewise kicking off an exceptionally poisonous kind of male sexuality, is spotlighting a trans lady. It’s pleasant and a sign that this magazine could simply get by into the new time of era.
