In June, Carlton addressed speculation about his gender, confirming he is "trans male" in an Instagram question and answer session in which he was asked why he participates in LGBTQI+ events.

"Maybe I just don't say it that much because I don't see a reason to really say it socially," he said. "But I'm a trans male, so that's why I am prideful."
