The Umbrella Academy star revealed how his life has “dramatically” improved nearly two years after coming out as transgender.
On the June 21 episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, he said, “I think of the times in my life when I was the most angry and I was the most unkind to myself or self-righteous or all of those things.”
“It has significantly improved my life.” I hope that those who disagree with me can try to hear that and accept it on some level. “
The 35-year-old, who has frequently criticized anti-trans legislation, explained that while he tries to lead with empathy, it is not always easy.
“I feel like it’s one of those things that’s so unfortunate because, you know, we’re all on the same team here,” he told host Seth Meyers. “Whether you’re trans, gender nonconforming, or cis, we all have these expectations, limits, and constraints as a result of people’s obsession with the binary and how we’re all supposed to live our lives.”
“It’d be so special for us all to be able to connect and talk about how similar we are in all of our journeys,” he continued.
