Chris revealed that they struggled with gender dysphoria for the last 21 years, and they came out as bisexual in 2020.
YouTube personality Chris Tyson, famously known for being a part of Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson’s channel, recently announced that they have been undergoing hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for two months. In a tweet, Chris shared that the HRT treatment has helped save their life, and that the hurdles that gender non-conforming people must go through to access gender-affirming healthcare are wild. HRT is a way for transgender or gender non-conforming people to achieve a more traditional masculine or feminine appearance. Cleveland Clinic explains that the therapy helps the person align their body with their gender identity.
Moreover, Chris added that their physical appearance has begun to change since they started HRT two months ago, and that the amount of body positivity they have received in such a short time is remarkable. Chris has previously struggled with gender identity, and the last 21 years have been about learning about gender dysphoria. Chris also came out as bisexual last year and revealed that their teenage attempts at coming out were met with negative backlash from friends and family.
In another tweet, Chris shared a photo with their 2-year-old son, Tucker, and revealed that he had inspired the HRT treatment, stating that “I made this decision because I wanted to show up as my best and happiest self for him.” The content creator added that he has learned a lot about himself from his son in such a short time and that he can’t wait to continue to learn through life together.
Chris’s friend and colleague, MrBeast, tweeted in response to Chris’s news and showed his support with three heart emojis. Chris rose to fame in 2012 when he joined MrBeast’s YouTube channel, and the channel has since amassed over 141 million subscribers. Chris’s personal journey, represented by the recent announcement, has been met with a lot of love and support from fans and friends alike.
