“I’ve been encouraged all my life to try to ‘explore my feminine side,’ and I’ve done that to the best of my ability. Now it’s time for me to explore my masculine side. This experience is for me. Am I now somehow going to negate, ignore, reject, or forget all that I’ve learned, lived and experienced as a female? Absolutely not! I believe I was put on this earth, in this life, to experience all that I have, as a woman. And as challenging as it’s been, I wouldn’t trade a minute of it. It’s just time for me to fully be my authentic self.”
— Cidny Bullens, a veteran of Elton John’s and Bob Dylan’s touring bands, with Grammy nominations and countless singing credits.
