Smol progress but I can’t wait for the day where my forearms no longer resemble toothpicks 😪
Being at the gym as a trans person who isn’t passing yet means a lot of unwanted attention and unsavory looks, I’m learning to let that go but sometimes I can’t so I try to channel that frustration into something more productive like getting that extra rep in.
Using gendered bathrooms/locker rooms give me a lot of anxiety because there’s no winning, I don’t belong in the women’s or in the men’s room. I tried to use a more remote men’s room yesterday but I ended up hiding in there until everyone left because i didn’t want to find out what would happen otherwise
But anyway hitting the gym after 4 hrs of running enzymatic assays in the lab and 5 more debugging my java database connectivity query....is actually a great way to work all my stress out 🕺🏻 #transawarenessweek
The tiny tiny difference between Canadian and American vernacular really throws me off sometimes like when they refer to beanies as toques???
Where am I
Working those baby muscles🙌🏽

A reminder that not voting isn’t an act of rebellion, it’s an act of surrender.
PLEASE. TAKE. THE. TIME. TO. GO. VOTE. TODAY. Marginalized individuals are counting on you to not only uphold your civic duties, but to secure some very basic human rights. #transrights #wontbeerased
Still feeling loved up on from this past Saturday’s fundraiser party. And a special thanks to my boo @amitaswadhin
for orchestrating the whole thing. It’s not easy for me to ask for help but Amita has been dragging me kicking and screaming to accept community love. But I gotta admit, being supported as I’m trying to make my dreams of being a professional boxer as who I am authentically feels fucking great. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those holding it down 🙏🏽 💕
My relationship with fitness and food had a more dramatic shift this year as I’m making an effort to live my most authentic life. Trying to find a balance between studying and lifting hasn’t been easy, but I’m really happy my mentality towards working out has shifted from a chore to something I look forward to because that’s the key to a sustainable habit.
So here’s the first progress pic of many and here’s to experiencing more and more gender euphoria and less dysphoria 👶🏻🌱 Sorry for looking so angry and tired, I had a rough week haha
On November 1st, I will be 32 months on testosterone. Four more months to go until I hit 3 years. And I recently surpassed 1 year post-top surgery. On January 7th 2019, my name will have legally been changed for 2 years. And now I'm looking at the future. Let me share some of my current thoughts with you: I am honestly not sure if I am going to be on T forever. There are effects from it I like. There are effects I don't like. A hysto is not in my near future, as I plan to get pregnant and have a baby someday. My insurance really, really, really sucks. So after I change insurance in November, I am going to pursue getting bottom surgery in 2019. A simple meta is what I will start with. And while I live in a state where I can change my birth certificate (already changed my license from F to M) without surgery, I am not sure if I want to do that. I don't feel great about changing my birth certificate to male. I would rather hold out until I can change it to a non-binary option. But. . . I have a lot to think about. We'll see. Thanks for listening .

What’s your experience seeking and getting a letter for #topsurgery
? I realized I need a letter for insurance purposes today as I’m scheduling my consultations and I’m wondering how to even begin this process of 1) finding a therapist 2) how many sessions 3) how expensive haha
Training camp starts tomorrow... Fight date announcement coming soon 👊🏽 #letpatfight
licking the pumpkin spice off my fingers.

Trying to get your shoes in a mirror selfie when you’re wearing tight pants is an extreme sport
also I found the cool yellow gender neutral bathroom on campus thanks @jackjupe
1st all nighter of the quarter and I am already tired of this
A week ago I was wearing my black point 5 cc logo hoodie to Wal-Mart. As I came out I saw an older gentleman taking donations for vets in my state (Missouri). He thanked me and asked what my hoodie means. I hesitated, then I was honest.
I explained how it's a transgender clothing line that also gives back to the LGBT community in different ways. From providing supplies and even funds for surgeries for transgender individuals, like myself.
He then told me about his 50 year old gay sister. "To each their own." I was pleasently surprised. Until he said that, I had no idea I was holding my breath.
We chatted for about 15 mins total. A conversation I know we wouldn't have had without that hoodie peaking his interest.
I recently shared this story with the founder of @point5cc
I thanked him for all he does as well as being so open and honest with his story. It inspires me to do the same.
Now, more than ever, we can't be quiet. We can't be erased. We can't sit down and take any more discrimination. **photos by @hgubisch

My birthday is Nov 7th and the best present you can give me is to take the time to go vote on Nov 6th.
If you feel like you won’t be making a difference, in Connecticut 2002, Republican Anne Ruwet unseated (D) Representative Kovaleski by 1 vote. New York 2017, 33 votes put a Democrat John Brooks in the US senate.
Right now we have 3+ seats in the senate to take back and 25 seats in the house to gain a Democratic majority
YOUR VOTE COUNTS. Use it. Make your allyship more than just words. Protect your friends that are most vulnerable.
Reject the Department of Health and Human Services‘s memo to make changes to Title IX to use the sex assigned at birth to determine a person’s gender and to define gender as “unchangeable.” #transrightsarehumanrights
trans people are super heroes. love on us. support us. let us live.
The struggle to have my humanity recognized by the state is nothing new. It’s hard wired in my DNA. Still black. Still transgender. Still human. Still here. And still fighting.
