X Factor star Octavia Donata Columbro comes out as trans


Octavia Donata Columbro, a former X Factor star who appeared on the ITV show in 2016 as part of duo Bratavio, revealed that she is a transgender female, and she is going to start her transition privately because waiting for an NHS appointment might take years. Columbro has detailed how after leaving the X Factor she went through a period of depression, feeling that as she lives a male life she lies to herself and one day it would kill her. Columbro said, “Hopefully I can spread awareness of transgender and gender identity issues and urge anyone who has feelings of being gender indifferent to go to their GP and ask to be referred to the gender identity clinic for assessment/diagnosis.” She said that rather than to suffer in silence it is better to learn to accept the beauty of your own.
