In September, Brown, formerly known as Hannah, came out to his mother and brother Lucas Brown, Yahoo News reported.
"The decision to come out was really scary," Adrian Brown told WAVE. "The hardest part was coming out to myself, accepting myself and loving myself for who I am."
Brown has had the full support of his family and found out the post has served as an inspiration to others.
"I thought this was sort of a struggle I had to do by myself. It's really heartwarming to see there are so many people out there who share the same story that I do and are so supportive of a complete stranger. And it gives me a lot of hope," Brown told WAVE. "I know a lot of people don't have the same level of support as I do, but knowing that I've got a support system like them -- it's amazing you know."
