Meet the dreamy trans male escort Viktor Belmont
Everyone is unique, let’s never forget that. However there are people with common thoughts and for want of better words, gender dysphoria.
Sometimes, one is born and usually from early on, they know deep down in the depths of their soul, that something isn’t matching up.
Most try to hide these feelings away, or conceal them due to confusion or in an effort to avoid social backlash.
Others stand up, stay proud, and fight for what will make them happy. It is never easy, anyone who says it is, simply doesn’t want to admit to the heartache and emotional trauma they experienced.
I came across Viktor Belmont not too long ago, and I was so inspired and emotionally rocked that I just had to share it with you all.
There are people out their chasing their dreams, and reaching them. Viktor is one of these people, and nothing short of an amazing human being.
He is currently 25 years old and living in San Francisco. Recently, at The Hookies, an awards show that honors the best in the male escorting industry, he won Best Newcomer.
Ultimately, Viktor won Best Newcomer through an online vote and with the support of his fellow male escorts.
“All these guys treated me as an equal. I was treated with the same respect as anyone else in the running. That equality was something I honestly didn’t know was going to happen.”
Everyone has their own struggles, their inner demons, fighting to be free, to be loved, for who they are. People need people. People need examples of hope. Viktor wants to be that person for anyone who needs it. That is why this story is important.
“I want to be accessible to people. I want people to know I have their back. That I believe in them,” he said.
Viktor has a lot of scars, but he describes his top surgery scars as his favourites.
“They’re this warm, gentle reminder of how hard I’ve worked to be me…. They’re my ultimate love note.”
He couldn’t afford his top surgery until just last year. It difficult to get employed after dropping out of high school, and employers were mostly confused by his gender.
Knowing how badly you want something, but having legit setbacks like money troubles, can lead one to extreme methods. Viktor was binding his chest with Ace bandages – an unsafe method practiced by many lesbians I know.
As a result, his ribs are now uneven. He would wear them all day and all night, they would cut into his tender body and he would bleed around his underarms.
I totally understand how hard it can be to not want something on your body to the point where such physical pain really doesn’t even compare to the emotional pain you are experiencing.
Viktor is a survivor, his story is a reminder that even when you feel you’ve hit rock bottom and at that point you feel like there is no light, you just have to believe it will be okay, you have to keep pushing, you are worth it!
Viktor didn’t think he would make it past 21, now he finally feels whole, he is complete within himself. Everyone deserves to feel that way.
We just have to find a way to love and accept ourselves
