Brendan Jordan, a teen who became a mini-internet sensation after a clip of him video-bombing a news report and vogueing to Lady Gaga’s “Applause” went viral, has revealed he identifies as transgender.

Jordan came out publicly at the Human Rights Campaign’s Time to Thrive conference on Sunday, saying he doesn’t identify completely with one gender and is comfortable using both masculine and feminine pronouns.

“Like most teenagers, I’m still figuring it out,” he stated. “I’m starting to label as one, or as part, of the trans community.”

Jordan added, “I can’t really label it, because, you know, some days, my more feminine side comes out — the ‘she.’ Some other days I don’t feel like putting on my fabulous mask, and the ‘he’ comes out, and I’m totally OK with that.”
