Shout-out to Cassandra James, who portrays Terry on General Hospital and is the first transgender woman cast as a transgender character on a soap opera. Soaps in Depthshares that James came out to her family and friends as being gay, but she still didn’t feel like she was living as her true, authentic self. In 2015, she came out again—this time as a transgender woman—and began her transition in 2016. Bravo, Cassandra, for being true to you and paving the way for others who need to know they are not alone! You are a Hero with Girl Power. Follow Cassandra on Instagram.
