'Transparent' transgender actress bullied growing up in Schaumburg
Feb 16, 2016 10:15 AM - "Transparent" star Alexandra Billings talks about what it was like to grow up transgender in Schaumburg in the 1970s. "It's easy for trans people to sit in the darkness of the past or the regret of the future. I understand that. I did that. I tried to bottle it up with drugs and booze and sex, and believe me, you can only run from yourself for so long. Eventually, you catch up to you," she said.
