Tia Michelle Pesando is a Man who identifies as a Woman, formerly called Ted. He is working on convincing the Catholic Church to admit him as a Carmelite nun. Given that nuns occupy women-only space, we look forward to seeing how the Catholic Church treats his request.
His YouTube videos are actually hilarious. Prior to wanting to nun, Ted seemed deeply invested in gaming culture. It seems Ted has been living a magical life online for two decades; it is not surprising he is now “transgender.”
Tia has also written a (self-published) book.
