Sophie Xeon Trans – Sophie Xeon Gender
Sophie Xeon was a transgender woman. She came out as a transgender woman in her 2017 video “It’s Okay to Cry.” Discussing her transgender identity in a 2018 interview with Paper magazine, Sophie said: “For me, transness is taking control to bring your body more in line with your soul and spirit so the two aren’t fighting against each other and struggling to survive. On this earth, it’s that you can get closer to how you feel your true essence is without the societal pressures of having to fulfill certain traditional roles based on gender. It means you’re not a mother or a father — you’re an individual who’s looking at the world and feeling the world. And it’s somehow more human and universal, I feel.”
On how society dictates gender, Sophie commented: “It’s tradition. If you’re straight from the factory, your life should have a certain look and come with a certain short list of factors that you have to fulfill in your own way. But because of the body that you’re born into, it’s your obligation to satisfy as many of those as possible and that defines being successful. As a trans individual, it’s more about going through a personal journey of discovering yourself. There’s something a lot more spiritual about that, and what’s possible once you reach that place is the ability to then look at other people not with judgement — not like anyone’s trying to take anything away from you, but with an openness.”
