A new transgender pop singer is on her way to becoming a star at just 16.
Stunning, blond teen singer Kim Petras changed sex via hormone treatment at the age of 12, making her one of the youngest people to undergo gender reassignment.
Originally called Tim, Petras has now landed a record deal and released her first album, according to Britain’s Sun newspaper.
“My music is most important to me at the moment. It’s the way I can best express myself,” Petras told the Sun.
“I know that because of my past people will always bring up the subject, I can’t get away from it.
“But I hope that one day I might be better known for my music than for my past.”
Petras underwent potent hormone therapy to halt male puberty and induce female secondary sex characteristics after doctors and psychiatrists diagnosed her as experiencing gender dysphoria, a condition in which transgender people strongly and persistently believe they were “born in the wrong body”.
Personally, I think she has a remarkable resemblance to Princess Rachelle.
