Leon shocked Sister Wives viewers when they revealed via Instagram that they are transgender. Leon shared with followers that while they didn’t have everything in their life figured out, they do know who they truly are. Leon told Sister Wives viewers that they wanted to let everyone know that they are trans, saying, “My name is Leon or Leo (i love both), and my pronouns are they/them.” Leo explained that they always knew that they weren’t a girl, and while growing up in a restricted society, they were ready to embrace their truth.

Leon posed in their photo while wearing shorts and a T-shirt. They seemed extremely comfortable in their own skin as they leaned against a doorway. Leon expressed that they are extremely proud to be “genderqueer and trans.” Leon revealed that identifying as queer is one of their favorite parts about themself. Leon is still getting to know who they are and will continue to share themself with their supporters. They decided to share their personal news so they could be in charge of setting their own boundaries. Leon made it clear that they won’t accept someone not using their correct name or pronouns and will happily stop speaking with anyone who chooses to be ignorant.

Sister Wives fans are waiting for Leon’s mother, Meri Brown, to comment on the news and to see how Kody Brown accepts his new son. For now, Leon is extremely happy with their decision and looking forward to the journey ahead. With the support of family, friends and Audrey, Leon is ready to embrace their true self.
