"There are so many other women around me who've inspired me to come forward today, and it's because of their fight and their struggle that I'm able to really do this and say that I'm nervous, but I'm not scared," the 32-year-old recording artist and cannabis activist exclusively reveals to EW. "I'm not going to live my life in fear anymore."
"People think that when you're trans that you've wanted to be a girl your whole life; yes, that's partly true [for me], but it's also true that I've wanted to be male my whole life to fit into what society deems as normal," she explains. "But, that isn't my truth, and I'm daring to take this on. I tried to be male and be in-between and nonbinary. The truth is I'm a feminine entity and I can live this life."
I know, not even that long ago, so many of my TRANS sisters & brothers did not received the love & support I’m receiving today in coming out. I recognize how privileged I am, & I want to say THANK YOU to all of those who came before me and made it so today could be joyous! 🏳️⚧️🙏🏼❤️— Laganja Estranja (@LaganjaEstranja) June 15, 2021
@LaganjaEstranja I am so proud of you for coming forward with your truth to the world 🏳️⚧️ It was you who also inspired me to come out and set myself free and I can’t help but only give you the same support as you once did! Welcome to the sisterhood.— Gia Gunn (@GiaGunn) June 16, 2021
