Stars who came out

Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 73: Wonderwall.com is taking a look at the ways the stars have told the world about their sexual identities... starting with this child actor. "Champions" star J.J. Totah, who found fame on the Disney Channel's "Jessie," came out as a transgender female in an essay for Time magazine at age 17 in August 2018. She'll now be known as Josie Totah. Josie explained that she had always been pegged as "J.J. Totah, gay boy... People kept assuming my identity." But she finally felt ready to speak her truth publicly after making the decision to start hormone replacement therapy at age 14, which helped her, slowly but surely, grow more confident. "My pronouns are she, her and hers," she wrote. "I identify as female, specifically as a transgender female. And my name is Josie Totah."
