La actriz juvenil Ian Alexander muestra su transformación de mujer a hombre
so much has happened in these past few months - i can’t wait to show you everything i’ve been working so hard on and the person i’m growing up to be. a lot of big changes are happening in my career, my personal life, and especially in my body as i get closer to being 6 months on testosterone. and while a lot of these changes have been positive (like a major boost in my self confidence and happiness, my voice dropping, being able to gain muscle mass without even trying), there are also things that are not so pleasant about going through puberty. like hormonal acne. it’s up to genetics, not everyone who takes testosterone gets acne. but since i have started to develop more serious acne as my body goes through these hormonal changes, i want to be as transparent and upfront about it as possible. i want to normalize acne not just for trans teens, but for everyone, even cis teens and adults who deal with acne. i don’t want to hide my acne in photos with makeup (unless i want to wear makeup - which is a different story) because i want to be honest with everyone. having acne is normal. it’s something that people without acne can have a difficult time sympathizing with - sometimes i get so frustrated with the appearance of my skin that i am too depressed to leave my house, out of fear that people will see me and judge me. i’ve been spending these past couple of months unlearning my conditioned beliefs about acne - acne is not gross, or ugly. it’s normal, and people can have acne and can be attractive. the two aren’t mutually exclusive. i hope my example can make a positive impact on other young people who also have acne, and will help society to look beyond the binary and push for diversity in every form, whether it’s race, gender, sexuality, body type, skin type, disability, etc. i want to be able to show other transgender teens that they are not alone in what they are going through.
