There have been a number of trans*-specific topics floating around in my head over the past few weeks, but I’ve been off attending events, meeting new people, and just living life in a way I never had a chance to before instead of writing. They say “live every day like it’s your last” and in some ways, I have been. I personally don’t believe anyone consciously does this, but rather allow themselves carte blanche to throw caution to the wind and do what their instinct says without thought of possible consequences.
On August 3, 2014, I posted a video very early in the morning to my Facebook page. As that day also was my birthday, I knew that this would be the optimal time to share my story publicly even though I had been living through as a female – ups, downs, and all – for the past year. As expected, more than half of my 300+ “friends” flocked to my profile over the course of the day and the floodgates were opened.
