Medical Transition:

I started injecting testosterone intramuscularly, a few weeks after my 31st solar return. The date was June 3, 2009. I can’t believe I’m coming up on 10 years soon! Time for a celebration. I had Top surgery March 10, 2015. Everyday Ilook at/touch my chest and I am so very grateful. Everyday.

When did you come out?
 Uh..which time! haha Coming out is never ending. At age 16, I came out as bisexual to a girl I was in love with. She didn’t believe in bisexuality so then I told her I was a lesbian because I was in love with her. But lesbian didn’t quite fit.  Ages 17 to 31 I identified as Queer. I still do but I stopped feeling queer sometime in the first few months of medical transition. In my mid-20s I came out as Bisexual which was difficult because I could hear my mother in my head talking about “I told you when you meet the right guy..blah blah blah”. But I had undeniable feelings for a man I worked with and I’m always true to my feelings/truth eventually. I came out as Polyamorous around that time. Coming out as Polyamorous was one of the most freeing things ever! I hadn’t heard of the word but I had the feelings and experiences since I was in elementary school. It was just confusing. I thought there was something wrong with the way I loved. I carried a lot of guilt in my early relationships because I didn’t know how to explain that it wasn’t about a lack of love for the person I was with, it was that when I am in love, my heart feels like it expands and I see, feel, and experience love for/with other people. As far as being trans,  I officially came out to myself as a Transexual to myself in December of 2004. I started coming out to other people from 2005 to present day. The Trans coming out was by far the hardest. I was so scared that I wouldn’t be accepted by my friends and family. I lost a couple of friends, I lost my mom and dad, a few family members were like, naw, not going to accept this, but I gained a stronger relationship with my extended family. My Aunts, Uncles, and cousins stepped in  proper to show me love and welcome me. I’m more grounded as a person and transition is THE BEST thing I’ve ever done for myself. There would be no life if I hadn’t taken that step. Talk about brave. I amaze myself sometimes.

Anything else you want to share. 
Yes. My favorite poem is “Always” by Pablo Neruda 

My current favorite tv shows are Russian Doll, The Good Place

I am ridiculously proud to be Taurus born and May born. 

I’m excited/curious about the future. My present is filled with love always, dreams/wishes, hope, and faith.
