I’m extremely lucky – to have a partner who has been my girlfriend, my almost-boyfriend, and my butch rock, throughout transition.
Eight months into a years-long journey and It’s been a wild ride so far.
Not all trans people want surgery, however, I do.
One of my strongest role models is, has, and will always be my mom.
No one likes how they sound when they hear their voices played back, for trans folks that feeling is often extremely amplified.
Coming out has not been easy but it has been worth it. It saved me and has given me the opportunity to exist.
Correcting my name and the sex designation on the birth registry was one of the most critical and vital parts of transition for me.
