Noelle Stevenson has had a big year. First, the She-Ra showrunner came out as non-binary, and then they got top surgery.
It was also the end of their groundbreaking series, Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power – which massively flipped the status quo by centring a lesbian love story on a kid’s TV series
Speaking to Out Magazine, Stevenson explained exactly why getting top surgery was so important to them, and how being at home during the pandemic helped them realise that.
“Suddenly this year, I’m not going anywhere, not even into a coffee shop. So I’m not worried about random people. I’m not worried necessarily about how I’m looking to the world at large,” they said. “And that actually really great gave me this little space to just be like, ‘Wait a second. I am still feeling these gender feelings.’”
