Today however, T.S. got a bit more personal as a guest on The Amanda Seales Show with a semi-somber segment of “Back of the Class.” The Florida native took us back to her high school days as a still-questioning teenage boy named Timothy, or ‘Timmy’ for short. The latter was a common nickname used by a close friend, one of the first trans-identifying teen girls she’d ever come across that changed Madison’s perspective on self-identity, and life in general, which eventually helped her grow into the proud trans woman we see today.

Of course, with painful memories can also come tears, which there’s always room for on The Amanda Seales Show.
