Tommy Dorfman's husband, Peter Zurkuhlen, showed his love & support to the '13 Reasons Why' actress.
Tommy Dorfman came out as a trans woman and announced it on her Instagram. In her latest post on IG, Dorfman revealed her self-acceptance journey and pronouns to she/her. Check out what her husband, Peter Zurkuhlen, has said about it!
Dorfman and Zurkuhlen are married since 2016. During Pride Month, Dorfman shared adorable photos with her husband and called him her "bestie."
"So much love. You are gorgeous and you are fully you," Zurkuhlen re-post Dorfman's latest post and wrote on it. "Proud of you, T," he added.
During an interview with Time, the 13 Reasons Why actor revealed that she and her husband have been "redefine" their marriage. "It's wild to be 29 and going through puberty again. Some days I feel like I'm 14. As a result of that shift, the types of romantic partnerships I seek out are different," she said.
"I was in a nine-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man," Dorfman continued. "I love him so much, but we've been learning that as a trans woman, what I'm interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man," adding that they "had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends. Transitioning has been liberating and clarifying," she shared.
I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically.
"I've been living in this other version of coming out where I don't feel safe enough to talk about it, so I just do it. But I recognize that transitioning is beautiful. Why not let the world see what that looks like?" Dorfman explained. "So I kept, on Instagram, a diaristic time capsule instead — one that shows a body living in a more fluid space. However, I've learned as a public-facing person that my refusal to clarify can strip me of the freedom to control my own narrative. With this medical transition, there has been discourse about my body, and it began to feel overwhelming."
