I Am A Trans-woman Under Construction

    This past week (Monday) I took a long drive to

    see some friends I've not seen for about a year and a half in San Diego Ca. I visited and stayed at Racheal's home! We spent the better part of Monday catching up and us going out in the evening. Rachel is a great photographer and took a few pics of me before heading out...

    I Am Who I Am

    I may be under construction but I am already the woman I always knew I should have been. The only thing I need is to get my physical out look to match my inner being.

    My Opinion On : Is It Important To Be Passable?

    When I came out in the early winter of 2010, I was so, so happy. I finally loved who I was becoming to be something I had never done before. I stopped my worrying about how the world saw me... I felt I was beautiful. When I came out I looked exactly the same as the day before...

    I started realizing that there was something

    about me that wasn't right around the age of 9. I didn't put it together exactly for 16 years, when I told my wife I wanted to have sex with men. Not oral sex, I wanted to be probed, feel a male member deep inside me. That was 1977. It was 2004 before I actually had that desire...

    Alright, I figured this would be an appropriate

    thing to post on here. But it’s just a few basics of how to treat transgender people. Do: 1) Try not to make a big deal out of it. This is a generally good rule. If you find out someone’s trans, shrug and move on. If you slip up with someone’s pronouns, do what you...
