Singer Teddy Geiger Reveals He Is Transgendered; Now Transitioning From Male to Female
Teddy Geiger, the 29-year old singer-songwriter, shot to fame in 2006 with his single “For You I Will.” He is also responsible for One Direction’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” and some of Shawn Mendes‘ biggest hits like “Stitches,” “Treat You Better” and “Mercy.”
Geiger posted a selfie on Oct. 26 on Instagram, and one of his followers asked why “he looked different lately.”
Geiger responded, “Okay… because u asked nicely… I am transitioning. I started talking about it with a couple of my close friends and family about a month ago and it’s given me the courage to start the process. I feel like the next step is to tell all y’all. So here goes. Love it or hate this is who i have been for a looooong time. I love u guys. Talk sooooon byeeee,” was his response to the followers question.
Geiger’s fans have been largely supportive, posting comments underneath his. One person wrote: ‘You are a beautiful person and I applaud your bravery and authenticity’, while another simply commented: ‘Be yourself!!!’
RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist Peppermint, who is a trans woman herself, wrote: “Thank you for sharing something so personal. @teddygeiger. I wish you all the love and support one can give. Proud of you!”
The following day, Teddy shared a selfie and wrote: “Woke up to so much love. I have the best friends.
