Reality TV face Sidney Starr took to Instagram over the weekend and reflected on her journey as a transgender woman. 

The former Baddies ATL and Love & Hip Hop star emphasized how much her pride has grown underneath throwback photos of her younger self. The bright-eyed youngin rocked curls and crimped hair in the snapshots. She also served face — and smiles — in the pictures from many moons ago. 

“Let’s go down memory lane,” the 34-year-old reality star wrote to her Instagram followers. “Now, this was a time of my life when I wasn’t very open about being a transgender female. I hated to have to tell my TEA. Nobody ever really knew I was trans…”

“But it was my journey and I’m loud and proud now… I was rocking my real [hair] too can y’all guess how old I was here??? Lol 🤔 I started my transition very young… #transisbeautiful.”

In the comments, fans and fellow stars loved Sidney’s candid throwback post. 

Kandi Burruss left a trio of heart eye emojis. Saucy Santana’s short and sweet comment said, “Been Pretty.”

One clever supporter said, “4+4 …… cus that’s what you d, id sis @sidneystarrbad 😍😍.” Another said, “This why they be hating on yu because you always been a STARR.”

Sidney revealed on her Instagram Stories that the photos were from when she was a child. 

The reality star reminded her followers that her face card didn’t decline, and she still served “cunt” realness. 

“I’m aging gracefully. I believe, lmao! I don’t smoke, do drugs… etc. I drank the,o lmaooo,” she admitted.
