Used to Be a Woman Before Surgery – Talks About His “Transgender Journey”
Back in May 2019, the Canadian actor Michael D. Cohen opened up about his “transgender journey,” revealing he transitioned 20 years ago. He told Time,
I was misgendered at birth. I identify as male, and I am proud that I have had a transgender experience — a transgender journey.
The 44-year-old believes people are still unaware of what it means to be transgender.
People don’t understand. They think this has to do with sexuality and it doesn’t. They think this has to do with pushing an agenda on kids and it doesn’t. What it does is send a message to kids that whoever they are, however they identify, that’s celebrated and valued and okay.
The actor reckons his chromosomes do not dictate his gender. “I’m a man. It’s not that hard.”
