Some other Thoughts Shared by Gavin Russom
“My body rejected it in the same way that it now utterly rejects going into a men’s bathroom or when somebody calls me ‘sir.'”
“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but I have my good days and my bad days. On my bad days, it really sucks and I wait until I get home to go to the bathroom—which is such a basic thing.”
“I am someone who has spoken out on both women’s rights and trans rights for a long time,” She added, “but when I started to transition myself, that was one of the most shocking things. I’m carrying so many of these things around with me. That’s been challenging to work through— having those preconditioned societal ideas of what transgender women can do.”

Gavin Russom’s message for Everyone Like him!
“For anybody who is struggling with their gender identity or who wants to come out and is afraid to, what would be better than giving someone permission to do that through my performance? That’s the ultimate. It’s what other people gave to me, so I’d love to pass that along to other people, too.”
