I decided that I look pretty good with this haircut
Shoutout to friends who know and understand that friendship extends further than coffee dates and casual conversation. Shoutout to adnanipatel who provided me with all the feels and all the wisdom at a time when i really needed while back in Moscow. Thank you for just being the incredibly beautiful person you are and for accepting me for the unstable sometimes overly emotional and insecure real human I am. Thank you for seeing past the hard ass persona. ❤️ you are loved. #friendship #lgbt #lgbtqia #gaylove #love #southafrica

Day 4 Transgender Awareness Week “MY DEADLY SIN REVEALED!!💀🌈😝”
It seems there is never an ok time to express my feelings and the complications I’m dealing with in conversations with others. It feels like bringing up the things I might be feeling or going through steals the conversation and leads it in a negative direction. Any one I’ve ever confided in has probably herd me say every couple minutes into me talking that I don’t want to be an emotional vampire, and I instantly want to stop sharing. So I really appreciate your listening 👂 during this week, and promise to go back to my everyday normal posts after this week is over. 🤓
In human existence it’s easy to use a series of idioms to solve most every day problems. Relationships problems? “There’s a million fish in the sea” Problems with Jealousy or unhappiness with your current situation? “ the grass is always greener”
While these really can be helpful thought experiments for most of life’s problems. Some of the difficult things transgender people have to deal with don’t necessarily have easy answers. Even when I try and connect with other transgender friends and hear their problems that I haven’t faced yet, & I don’t have a solution for, It makes my head kinda short circuit! So I understand what it must be like confronted in a conversation with things that might have never even crossed some ones mind before.
Being a problem solver in nature, I’m at a loss for the answers my self, and I don’t expect some one else to feel like I’m wanting an answer from them on the topic when I bring it up, I guess like any other women I just want to be heard. 💚 (Continue Below to find out which “Deadly Sin” I’m working to over come)

Tonight was cathartic. I am surrounded by some really fuckin’ amazing queers. 🌈
🎵🎶Day3 Transgender Awareness Week🎶🎵 On my day one post I said that I was going to share the good and the bad parts of my experience. Well we made it to one of the most positive and powerful things that changed and shaped my life because of my transgendered incarnation here on earth.
Music🎵Hiphop🎤 & the Love of Friends/Family. This clip is a combination of all those except for Hiphop.
Although I was born into a musical birth family, I’m not sure I’d have started writing and performing solo without the soul shattering pain of living a transgender life. Almost all of my therapy through out my experience was with my guitar and a mic. Although sitting alone in my room writing and expressing my self was the start of me finding out how to release the pressure on my always threatening to explode life, the real healing began when I timidly stepped on stage the first time.
I still deal with lots of social anxiety, but even thinking of stepping on stage to talk about the things I needed to get out, at that stage of my life, was paralyzing to say the least!
Choosing my transition as a time to stand in a literal spot light made me face fears and demons that had been controlling my choices in life up to that point.
Transitioning is a spot light in and unto its self. I’ve never enjoyed being the center of attention, and yet the moment in life you most want to just ninja out and disappear, people start watching your every move. I mean, I understand now that watching a “Masculine” body changing due to the effects of hormones into a feminine body is quite the entertaining show, very much magical! But the extreme Anxiety I felt at the time robed me of the chance to see that magic except for in hindsight. (continued down below)

Day 2* Transgender Awareness Week Money Money Money 💵
So one of the hardest things I’ve found to deal with being transgender is finding work. With out any protection from discrimination it makes paying the bills and feeling financially secure seem impossible.
I’ve been let go from well paying jobs because of being transgendered. I’ve been hired as a female and then later asked to return to work as a male if I wanted to keep my job. I’ve even won awards for doing my job exceptionally, based on client comment cards, only a few months before being told it just wasn’t working out.
A lot of these problems stem from the fact that changing simple things like F’s & M’s on id’s & paper work is hard, expensive or impossible in some states.
Being hired as the gender you live as and then having the back ground checks or other paper work come back to jeopardize your ability to pay rent has left me always feeling like I’m standing on unstable ground.
I hate to give a problem with out suggesting a solution. So a simple first step would be to allow these changes on things like Id’s to be made available a bit easier, but still with checks and balances!
The path to peace for transgender Americans is very expensive and yet it’s hard to get and keep a job. This can cause a lot of stress and anxiety.
In Texas it cost over a hundred dollars just to talk to a specialist lawyer on the phone about getting a letter on my drivers license changed, so I could gain employment easier, and not have to give my personal history to every person that I ever need to give my Id too . Then it was a few thousand more just to attempt to change it in court. I was told that it mostly depended on which judge my case was appointed, and if we didn’t get a compassionate judge the first time I’d have to pay the charge again for a second attempt.
Making this easier could be a game changer for the transgender comunity! #transgenderisbeautiful #transgenderweek #transwk #transgender #trans #transeducation #transgenderawarenessweek #transvisibility #transrightsarehumanrights #useyourvoice #speakup #lgbtqia #thisiswhattranslookslike #transpride #transpride
