Teddy Geiger hit her first red carpet Tuesday night, May 8th, since beginning her gender transition, and she looked absolutely glowing.
The famed singer and songwriter was honored at the 2018 BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills for co-writing Shawn Mendes’ hits “Mercy” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” Geiger opted for a patterned black dress and ankle-strap black pumps for the special evening, with her hair styled in loose waves. The overall ensemble was both understated and chic.
Geiger, who you may remember from the hit early-2000s track “For You I Will (Confidence),” revealed that she’s transgender to her fans back in October on Instagram.
Teddy also posted about starting hormone replacement therapy in November, and revealed that she prefers female pronouns: “Heyaaaa! A lot of u guys are asking. She/her pronouns are perfect,” she tweeted. “And… yes I am still Teddy.”
In the months since, she’s documented some of the transition process on social media, posting selfies, showing off her newly pierced ears, and growing out her tousled brown hair.
We love seeing Teddy so happy, confident, and wholly herself. We can’t wait to see what she does next now that…*Shawn Mendes voice*…there’s nothing holding her back.
