Gia Gunn Gets New Birth Certificate: “I Am So Proud Of Myself For Getting This Done!”


Gia Gunn has made it official.

Back in March, Gian Gun came out as trans in a personal Instagram video in honor of International Transgender Day of Visibility.


“I thought I would dedicate today in the spirit of being visible to share my transition with all of you,” Gunn revealed in the clip. “I have been on hormone replacement therapy for about a year and I identify as female and I am indeed transgender.”

Now the former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant has announced on Twitter that she got a birth certificate to reflect her legal name and transition.

“No document will ever validate or justify my gender, but I am so proud of myself for getting this done,” Gia tweeted this week.

Gia came out as trans in March and the following month had her legal named changed to Gia:

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me on this journey… if you are in transition, or struggling with your gender identity, I want to hear from you in the comments and let’s be visible,” she said in her coming out message earlier this year.

Congratulations, Gia! Keep stunning!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
