Teddy Geiger arrives to the 66th annual BMI Pop Awards held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on May 8, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Six months after announcing her transition, Teddy Geiger stepped into the spotlight on Tuesday (May 8) by attending the 2018 BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills, California.

Geiger was honored at the ceremony for her role in co-writing Shawn Mendes' hit tracks "Mercy" and "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back." Although this is her first time at an event since coming out, Geiger has been active on Instagram, posting selfies, photos of nature and subtle updates on her transition.

Back in October, the songwriter took to the platform to announce the new step in her life, posting a screenshot of a reply to a comment asking why she looks different lately. "Because u asked nicely... I am transitioning," she replied. "I started talking about it with a couple of my close friends and family about a month ago and it's given me the courage to start the process. I feel like the next step is to tell all y'all. So here it goes. Love it or hate this is who i have been for a looooong time."
