[Tom’s Coming Out Speech]

[Tom (Mia Sosnik):] Source:
On December 28th, 2014, Leelah Alcorn, a 17-year-old trans-woman committed suicide because her family didn’t accept her.

This made me want to act on a subject that has been bothering me for quite a long time.

All of sixth grade, I struggled with my gender identity and I am now embracing my truth. For a while, I dismissed the fact that I hated my body. I pretended to be content with what I was assigned until, at a certain point, I broke.

I went through a series of horrible breakdown and I would stand under the water and the shower, crying. I knew I wasn’t happy, but it didn’t seem fair to me that everyone else around me was. They didn’t spend all their time thinking about how much they hated being categorized as a woman. I didn’t share that same feeling in fact I felt the opposite.

For some of you this may come as a shock and for others, well, you knew or you thought I was transgender. Well, here is the reassurance. I am no longer Mia. I never really was. And now, I finally stand before you in my true and authentic gender identity, as Tom. I stand before you as a 13-year-old boy.

I understand that this will be a difficult adjustment, but I hope and trust that you will treat me with respect and thoughtfulness. So for those of you who are having trouble; that is completely understandable, you have known me as a girl for over a year and it’s hard to understand that I never was that girl.

I want to tell you as I consider you all my friends, almost of you, no I am kidding, um… in my heart I am still the same person, whether you like that person or not, it’s me. So here I am no longer Mia Sosnik, a 13-year-old girl, that you thought you knew, but Tom.

I imagine that some of you will have questions and I am opening to – I am open to answering them at any time they come to you. I trust that you are all mature enough to understand, which questions maybe inappropriate, disrespectful or hurtful. Please feel free to ask me because after all I know the most about my transition. Please talk about this with your parents and your family, but I ask of you to really not to talk about it with your friends, it’s not gossip worthy.

If there’s something you want to say, I’m happy to talk with you. And I really hope that you will – will support my decision to embark on a harder route in life as the boy I truly am.

Any form of support is received with much gratitude and I hope that everyone can really support me because you guys are like my second family. And if you support me, I will feel like the luckiest boy in the world. Thank you for letting me share my story.

I want to just tie it back to what I said at the beginning. After reading Leelah’s suicide letter, I can’t really appreciate the support I have in my family and my community that she never got. Thank you all for making me feel safe enough to openly be myself.
