Transition Tuesday. From a night out in Atlanta a year and a half ago to a night out in Boston this past Friday. I had never been one for the big city life even growing up less than an hour north of Boston I very rarely went into town. Im not exactly a country bumpkin either I grew up in a small city of 60K. But since transitioning I seem to be hitting up boston an awful lot more and truth be told i enjoy it more as well. Not sure if it just comes with age or if the whole deal is just more fun as a woman. Whatever the reason I guess I can just add this to the ever growing list of things I now enjoy as a woman that previously I hadn't. Like I am more complete as a person now so I can enjoy more of life. 😁😁 #transition#trans#transgender#transisbeautiful#girlslikeus#thisiswhattranslookslike#transitiontuesday#maletofemale#m2f#lgbt#lgbtq
Was invited to speak at the 2019 International Student Shine Awards last night, where high achieving international students doing fantastic work were recognised. I shared my experience living at the intersection of being an international student in higher education, migrant and a transgender woman. It was scary sharing my story in public but it was exhilarating and purposeful, and hopefully planted a seed for conversations to be had.
And we wonder why LGBTQ people are hated. It’s because of all of these extra fucking genders that DONT exist. The difference between trans and the other bullshit? TransGENDER and Transsexual. Trans man. And trans woman, have all been scientifically and medically proven, the rest is completely political. Fake. Made up. Gender is not a social construct and you can’t be “in the middle” you’re either a boy or girl. Get the fuck over it. People who are asexual don’t need a label, you are not LGBTQ just because you have zero fucking sexual preferences. Pansexual is bisexual. Get over it 😂 #trans#transisbeautiful#lgbt#lgbtq#pride#rainbow#hrt
One year. One year on HRT. —————————————————————— I honestly didn’t think I’d ever get this far. I thought I’d be doomed to a life of forever wondering what it would be like to be the person I am now, watching my mind twist itself into abstract shapes trying to justify my existence in this world when everything felt so wrong. —————————————————————— And yet here I am, finding myself wondering how I managed to live so long as the person I used to be. It’s wild how one year changes so much, right? I can safely say that Estrogen has been the single greatest thing I’ve done for myself ever in my life. The lowest of the lows now don’t even begin to compare to how it was before transitioning and the highest of the highs are a beautiful triumph. —————————————————————— Our journeys are myriad and complex. Through it all, we have the power within us. We just need the right keys. I wouldn’t be where I am without great friends and estrogen. I could have been trapped in my past endlessly, without the love and support of so many. So this one’s for you; I’m so thankful for you and I’m here for you —————————————————————— Song of the day: “Local Cosmos (Soft 4Beat remix) - Mitsuto Suzuki. Soft EDM. “Believing in magic can make you strong. Tell everyone that this is the place where you belong.” —————————————————————— #transgender#transwoman#trans#transformationtuesday#transitiontuesday#transition#hrt#estrogen#trueself#livingmybestlife#lgbtq#lgbt#girlslikeus#oneyearlater#transisbeautiful#wontbeerased#transvengers#thejourneycontinues#oneyear#estellfie
