Trinity The Tuck is opening up about her gender identity. 

In a heartfelt message posted to their Instagram account today, the legendary performer — who is probably best known for being a finalist on RuPaul's Drag Race season 9 and winning the crown alongside season 10 queen Monét X Change on All Stars 4 — came out as transgender and nonbinary, sharing their ongoing journey in the hopes they can help others going through the same thing feel more seen.

"Years ago after starting drag I seriously questioned how I identified with my gender," Trinity wrote. "That's why I altered my body starting at the age of 21 to look more feminine and also started hormone therapy for a short period."

She continued: "I stopped because I personally don't know that I would be comfortable living as female with the way I'd physically look. Everyone has their own journey I suppose. I've spoken with many of my friends who are trans to get their thoughts and insight over the years. I still don't know where my journey will take me, but I am trans-NB. I wanted to share my feelings in hopes that others who felt like me would know they aren't alone. Sending out love! I hope it finds you."

Trinity is one of numerous Drag Race queens who have come out as trans this year. This season alone so far, contestants like Willow Pill, Jasmine Kennedie, and Bosco have all publicly opened up about their own journeys with their gender and their roads to self-acceptance.

Congrats on living your truth, Trinity!
