Harnaam Kaur is not your average celebrity, but anyone who spends any amount of time on social media has no doubt seen her face before. Kaur, a young lady in her 20s, has a full beard. And it’s beautiful, and Kaur rocks it as part of her identity. The beard is a symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome, which she was diagnosed with at the age of 12. PCOS is a hormonal disorder which causes irregular periods and an excess of male hormones — thus, the beard. Kaur was the victim of relentless bullying as a teenager, and it took her a long time to come to terms with her body (and to stop trying to change it through painful “beauty” treatments). Nowadays, she’s a motivational speaker and a role model for people everywhere who don’t fit within the standard gender binary.
