Ru Paul’s Drag Race contestant Bosco came out as a trans woman in a heartfelt Instagram message.
“After filming wrapped this summer, I began focusing on figuring out what medical transitioning would look like for me,” Bosco wrote. “I started HRT [hormone replacement therapy] after getting back from Drag Race. I also plan to start exploring some surgical options in the near future.
“This is something that’s been on my mind for over a decade now. I’ve spent my adult life working in the food industry and have never felt financially secure enough to start this process. Honestly, I was also just flat out terrified of how I’d be treated. I still am.”
