Indya Moore parents, biography, wiki, early life, and education
Indya Moore full name is Indya Adrianna Moore, born on January 17, in The Bronx, New York, United States.
Indya is the child of Puerto Rican mother Gloria Feliciano and a Catholic father from the Dominican Republic, thus a multiracial.
Indya was born transgender, denoting a sense of personal identity and gender that does not correspond with their birth sex. Indya uses pronouns they/them.
Indya has one sibling, a brother.
They (Indya) were assigned male at birth, but as they grew up, female characteristics became dominant but still retained male traits, which undermined the full development of organs such as breasts. These made it difficult for people to distinguish their gender orientation.
“I wasn’t performing gender in the ways that the people around me expected me to. That’s when I started to question myself and what I looked like in the eyes of other people.” Indya recounts.
Their parents found it hard to contain social pressures from the community, and Indya felt discontented with their care. Also, they faced bullying in school and were forced to quit.
Indya left home at 14 and went to foster care homes where they got a mother who took care of them. The foster mother was providing special hormones for them to aid in transitioning but cut the supply when they were 16. This made Indya work as a sex worker to get the hormones.
“I lied about being an adult so that I could be a sex worker,’ they say.
“No kid should be a sex worker. No kid should be sex trafficked.” They added.
Living under foster care was not easy as they kept relocating from one place to another. Ultimately living in all five boroughs of New York City.
