“My name is Stephen. I identify as a trans man, a f*ggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut,” Stephen says in the clip.

Stephen, 20, answered the question of who has been most supportive of his transition, but doesn’t mention his parents or family at all.

Stephen — who once slammed fellow transgender advocate Chaz Bono — elaborated on his biggest passions in life.

“I would like people to be more intentional with their actions and with their language and to realize that words mean things. I would like us to imagine more complexly,” he said.
