Tommy Dorfman has announced her engagement to a woman who she describes as ‘just a gay girl.’
Dorfman played the character Ryan Shaver in the popular series "13 Reasons Why."
She revealed last year that she had transitioned to being female.
Dorfman described being in love as being "safe," "uncomfortable," and sometimes "painful."
She added that it also felt "very affirming."
The actress described her partner as "someone who doesn't fetishize [her.]"
Dorfman revealed that her partner helps her take her estrogen shots.
Dorfman divorced then-husband Peter Zurkuhlen earlier in the year.
The actress said she desired to help younger trans people through their own identity journeys.
