Today is #TransDayOfVisibility
My story: I started transitioning 9 years ago, started testostrone 7 years ago this October. Since starting T, I've become more and more "stealth" - not as a conscious decision, but more of a subconscious fear being discriminated against (work, housing, assault, etc.). At WSU, I delved deep into the queer community, and my family there was so tight and supportive. But here in Seattle, I've not so much as secluded myself, but I haven't actively sought out the queer community. I feel ashamed and disappointed in myself for losing my community as I've grown older.
This year, I want to reconnect with my queer community and help those who may not have all of the resources they need.
To those who have been with me since my baby queer years at WSU, those who came into my life in the past few years, my family and my friends, and my trans siblings who came before me, I love you. I cherish and appreciate you. I wouldn't be here without you.
