Tommy Dorfman is an American actress-writer, photographer, director, and the wife of Peter Zurkuhlen. Recently, she has come out as a transgender woman. Four years ago, in an interview with TIME magazine, she announced herself as non-binary. Now she has taken another step in what she called her “evolution” and says she identified herself as a transgender woman. Dorfman told TIME “For a year now, I have been privately identifying and living as a woman—a trans woman,” further continued, “It’s funny to think about coming out because I haven’t gone anywhere. I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically. Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy.”
She also told why she decided to come out as gay and said “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? 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 narrative. With this medical transition, there has been discoursing about my body, and it began to feel overwhelming.” Dorfman said she and her husband have redefined their relationship since coming out and 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. 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. So we’ve had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends.”
