Dylan started the video with their iconic phrase, where she normally reveals the number of days since she began their transition.

This one began a little differently, however. “It’s day 9610 of being a human,” she said. “I’m going to try to leave gender out of this since that’s how we found ourselves here.”

She added: “I’ve always tried to love everyone, even the people who make it really, really hard, and I think it’s ok to be frustrated with someone or confused, but what I’m struggling to understand is the need to dehumanize and to be cruel.”

Mulvaney went on to explain that she doesn’t want to stay quiet anymore. She said: “The people who know me and my heart won’t listen to that noise. What I’m interested in is getting back to making people laugh and to never stop learning.”
