“Champions” star Josie Totah has taken to Instagram to share her first snap since coming out as transgender in August.
Totah, 17, who was stood on a bridge while wearing a pair of black jeans and a white tank top in the pic, asked in the caption: “What’d I miss?”
The actress was bombarded with praise in the comments section, with the likes of Disney Channel stars Kayla Maisonet and Jenna Ortega both gushing about how beautiful the star looked.
Ortega, 15, shared: “Wow, you’re really THAT beautiful” as Maisonet, 19, added: “yesss biihh!!”
Totah’s post comes after she spoke out about being transgender in a moving essay published by Time.
The actress wrote, “I have come to believe that God made me transgender. I don’t feel like I was put in the wrong body. I don’t feel like there was a mistake made.
“I believe that I am transgender to help people understand differences. It allows me to gain perspective, to be more accepting of others, because I know what it feels like to know you’re not like everyone else.”
