Model and trans advocate Munroe Bergdorf has shared on Instagram the results of her recent facial feminization surgery.
"This is surgery that I've waited for and desperately wanted for over seven years and I can't tell you how much of a weight has been lifted as a result," Bergdorf wrote in her caption. "Like many trans people, gender dysphoria is something that I have battled with throughout my transition. I made this decision by myself, for myself, so that I can start the next chapter of my life. Surgery is a personal choice, not all trans people want surgery, not all trans people need or have the medical access to surgery, but it was the right decision for me and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been able to make such a decision."
Bergdorf first came to mainstream attention after being dropped from a L'Oreal diversity campaign for sharing her views about the insidiousness of white supremacy in the wake of Charlottesville.
