Viral Star Brendan Jordan Comes Out as Transgender

Brendan Jordan, a viral internet star who won over fans with his “Vogue” dancing in the background of a news broadcast, has come out as transgender.

The teen star gave a speech at HRC’s Time to Thrive conference this week while introducing trans model Andreja Pejic.

“Like most teenagers, I’m still figuring it out. I’m starting to identify as one, or as part, of the trans community. I can’t really label it, because, you know, some days, my more feminine side comes out – the ‘she,’” Brendan said (via NewNowNext). “Some other days I don’t feel like putting on my fabulous mask, and the ‘he’ comes out, and I’m totally OK with that. And I don’t know who I am, or where I will be going in the future, who I will be 10 years from now but I’m still a teenager. I just like the limitless feeling of it, and I’m perfectly fine with who I am now. I just identify with both genders, so I go by the pronouns he or she and it’s just what I’m happy with.”

Brendan later confirmed the news on his Twitter account and said he identifies with being gender fluid.
