Tyson revealed the news of his transformation in April. They wrote on social media at the time: “HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) informed consent saved my life and the lives of many others.” The gnc (gender non-conforming) hurdles people have to jump through to get life-saving gender-affirming healthcare in a 1st world country is crazy to me.
“Just let people make informed decisions about their own bodies.”

HRT is a process for those who wish to identify as gender non-conforming in which a sex hormone drug is administered to allow them to achieve a more traditionally masculine or feminine look.
People assigned male at birth are usually prescribed estrogen because it blocks testosterone and allows people to better align with their gender identity.
Tyson previously revealed how their physical appearance “has already started to change” after their first two months of treatment.
The star said they decided to start HRT two months ago and that parenting his two-year-old son Tucker helped him make his decision to start treatment.
