Trinity The Tuck is here to set the record straight!

In Mar. 2022, Trinity came out as trans and nonbinary in a since-deleted post on X (formerly Twitter). She wrote:

“Years ago, after starting drag, I seriously questioned how I identified with my gender. 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. 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.”

They continued, “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.”

Nearly two years later, on Sunday, Jan. 21, the RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 co-winner shared a series of Instagram stories about her gender identity as a result of so many fans asking her questions and being confused about where she stands.

Trinity started this series on Instagram stories writing:

“I’ve been getting comments here and there about ‘wait, I thought they came out as trans’ on my out-of-drag photos I post. I want to [clarify] again. I’ve NEVER claimed to be a trans woman. I’ve never lived those struggles. I wouldn’t claim that unless my transition [was] furthered. I am trans nonbinary.”

​“I have struggled [for a long] time with how I look, how I feel and the path I intend to take,” she continued. “I’m near 40 and though it’s never too late to live your life how you feel/want, me personally, I have fears of fully transitioning at this age. I’ve done tons of research and talked to many friends but I still don’t know where this journey will end up.”

Trinity added, “Stop posting on people’s pages stuff like ‘I thought you came out as trans.’ That’s hurtful and very rude. What [is] any form of transness supposed to look like? Not [every] trans person (binary or non) gets work done. Not every trans person (binary or not) look what you think of like the beautiful Kylie Love.”

“I have major body dysmorphia as well as gender dysphoria,” Trinity wrote in their final Instagram story about the issue. “I have to admit I worry what I would look like if I had even more surgery to look how I would want to look if I lived fully as female. I still don’t know where this journey will take me but it’s mine to go through. Please stop commenting on how I currently look as far as asking over and over about transitioning [heart emoji].”
