6. Is Gottmik transgender?
Gottmik is a proud transgender man. Speaking to Gay Times about his trans identity, he said: "I’ve known my whole life that something felt different. When I was a child, I only wanted the Happy Meal with the boy toy, and I only wanted to wear the boy uniform to school. Society told me I was just a tom-boy, but it wasn’t until I was 18 when I finally got the right group of friends around me that allowed me be myself and come to terms with the fact that I was transgender."
