Daily Coolness: “It was Like I’d Swallowed Rainbows!”

Ha πŸ™‚ I really love this guy, Spencer β€” I’m very non-confrontational, too and really identified with a lot of his story… I love how he came out to his friends on Facebook, and I especially love the story about coming out to his family. Hmm. Too bad my parents don’t drink… This is from […]

Personal: Coming Out Woes and WHOAs!

I’m SO sorry that (once again) I kinda fell off the planet… it’s definitely been a stressful few weeks, and I just haven’t found the focus/energy to write β€” even though I really have wanted to. I guess I’m also a little frustrated with myself for not making more progress on the coming out front. […]

Daily Coolness: “My Mama Tells How She Feels”

I found these videos from Jaden (kaynesworld on YouTube) forever ago, and have re-watched them over and over several times over the last few months. They’ve provided a LOT of comfort as I face coming out to my mom (and the rest of my family)…

T Update: Three Weeks (already!)

I’ve been trying to post for the last week and a half – in fact, I think this post makes a grand total of FIVE attempts.

Personal: Progress (part 2)

Despite my fears and the many hurdles I still have yet to face, my therapist told me that I am ready (YEEEE!!! ::puke::) I was shocked and surprised and excited and scared, and I simultaneously experienced waves of thrill AND nausea. I was expecting to be months away from anything… I was expecting that she […]

Personal: Progress (part 1)

My poor ADD brain is so overloaded right now; I’m not really sure where to start… (Hmm… Perhaaaps I should start with an appointment to get back on some sorta meds for that damn ADD. Heh.) At any rate, I had my first appointment with my new** therapist yesterday Tuesday afternoon, and I’m still reeling […]

Personal: Visibility Among Lesbians

So, I hung out a couple of nights this week at a popular lesbian(ish) bar here in town, and wow… it really made me FEEL like a lesbian β€”err, rather, it’s reminded me that I LOOK like a lesbian (duh, right? I know… I mean, up until fairly recently** I’d been living my life as […]

Personal: Regarding Transition

I just started the process of coming out as trans… Ha. I’m still not even sure what that means, for me, exactly. I’ve never been happy as a girl. I mean, I finally, eventually found a place that works (kind of) – living as a butch lesbian. I made it work. I’ve evolved into this […]
