They Are Transgender
“I just wanted to let you know that I am transgender, and my pronouns are they/them. I’m still going by Audrey,” Audrey revealed via Instagram in December 2021. “I don’t want to hide myself from the world anymore. I am so incredibly excited! I am also scared. I am scared of the hate I’ll receive, the things people I care about will say about me, and violence. As a white, masculine presenting person comes a lot of privilege, and I am still scared.”
“I don’t want to make this all sad because I am SO happy being me!” they wrote after sharing a photo of themselves. “Being fully myself lately has brought me so much joy. For the first time, I look at my body and I feel free. I am starting to feel more at home, more ME. I love being trans and I love being queer. I am still the same person I was yesterday. I just might look a little different!”
Audrey thanked the “supportive people” in their life that helped and encouraged them to “foster this growth and discovery.”
Meri Brown, Mariah’s mother, was one of the many supportive commenters. “I freaking love you @audreykriss,” she wrote at the time, adding a heart emoji.
They Are Engaged to Mariah Brown
Mariah came out to her polygamous family in a 2017 episode of the popular TLC show, describing her relationship with Audrey as “refreshing” and that their friendship, which turned into a romance, “felt right.” The couple met while they were both undergraduates at Westminster College in Utah. In 2018, Mariah introduced Audrey to her family, including Kody’s three other wives Janelle, Robyn, and now-ex Christine.
“I can’t exactly pinpoint [when I knew they were the one], but it was pretty early on,” Mariah told People in February 2019. “There are a lot of things about Audge that I am so in love with, and I knew that I wanted to love those things for the rest of my life. [They] made me a better person and continues to make me a better person.”
