Chris Tyson responds to confusion over appearance

Chris Tyson has been at the forefront of streamer news recently for divorcing their wife and coming out as bisexual. They tweeted in late March to confirm that they had split from his wife, a tough situation due to the couple’s shared children.

Tyson continued to change their appearance over this time as well, confusing some fans. Now, Tyson has revealed that they have been on HRT for two months. HRT is short for hormone replacement therapy. It’s used to replace shortages of estrogen.

Tyson stated that HRT saved their life as well as the lives of many other gender non-conforming people.

The YouTuber said: “Just let people make informed decisions about their own bodies.”

While HRT is often used by trans individuals, Tyson did not explicitly state that they are trans. On Twitter, they explained that finding themselves “does not always mean they are now X identity.”
