If you were a teen in the early 2000s, this song probably made it into your iPod:

Best known for being the pretty boy in the hit single “For You I Will (Confidence),” Geiger has since remained in the music biz as a songwriter. Writing credits include Shawn Mendes’ chart-topping songs “Stitches” and “Treat You Better.”

While Geiger has remained behind the scenes, the 29-year-old has been active on social media.

The songwriter posted this picture in late October, which prompted a netizen to ask, “Why do you look different lately?”

Geiger’s response was straightforward: “Because you asked nicely, I am transitioning.”

It has been a month since Geiger opened up to friends and family. “It’s given me the courage to start the process. I feel like the next step is to tell all y’all.”
