Earlier, Tommy had revealed that since the time she came out as a trans woman in 2017 after her gay relationship with Peter, they had to redefine their relationship. Tommy now goes by she and her pronouns. She had said to The Time:

“I was in a nine-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man. I love him so much, but we’ve been learning that as a trans woman, what I’m interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man. So we’ve had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends.”

They separated last year in July but continue to be friends.

Tommy and his transgender transition

The actor was supposedly gay. But in July 2021, he revealed to the world about his transgender transition and changed the pronouns addressing him. Tommy had said:

I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically. Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy.”

But she continues to retain the name Tommy. This is because the name has a family significance to it. It was the name of her uncle who expired before Tommy was born.
