“Some time before I bought my first binder,” they wrote. “Messing around with @sirdavidsimon, we used boxing wrap, thanks for capturing this with me, very intimate, very new, very cool. It’s all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it.”

Corrin, who recently won a Golden Globe for their work on The Crown, then shouted out the binder company they now use, gc2b.

Fans also excitedly noticed that Corrin updated the pronouns in their Instagram bio to she/they.

Corrin appeared to come out as queer in an earlier Instagram post on April 7. They posted a photo of themself in a wedding dress from a Pop Magazine photo shoot and captioned it, “ur fave queer bride.” While they did not expand beyond that, many fans celebrated the post as a coming out moment.

With Corrin’s recent photos and pronoun updates, it seems they were right.
