January - CARTER
My name is Carter Ray, I’m a 25 year old trans actor from the beautiful state of California. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I identify as male, and my pronouns are he/him. It’s taken me many years to be comfortable with who I am now, and it’s been quite the journey. When I was 20 I began hormone therapy, and I also had top surgery.
My family kicked me out and didn’t speak to me for two years. It was very hard on me, and I decided to channel my emotions through acting. I ended up getting casted in a few short films and tv series. I wanted show young trans people that they are not alone and that they can do anything they set their hearts to do, no matter the obstacles. My family saw how truly happy I was and they have come around and are now very accepting of who I am. Sometimes in order to be happy you have to be willing to disappoint people. My whole life I tried so hard to be life everyone else, but now I’m just simply being me. Just know you are never alone, never be afraid to be undeniably happy! Love you all!
