I’m extremely lucky – to have a partner who has been my girlfriend, my almost-boyfriend, and my butch rock, throughout transition.
Today marks a milestone, today I’ve been on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for a full year.
About a month ago I attended my sister’s wedding and saw most of my family for the first time since I transitioned.
In less than a week I’ll be attending my sister’s wedding it will also be the first time I will see my family since I came out and started to transition.
Eight months into a years-long journey and It’s been a wild ride so far.
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.
