Be the femme qtapi boi you want to see. Be the representation you want to see. 💙💖✨ . The trans community (ftm magazine, for instance), puts a high amount of *cis-passing, White, masc / muscular trans men into existence. But there’s not enough trans people of color + specifically Asian trans folks or femme trans men in the media or trans-related sites. 95% of what I see/hear/what’s represented about “what trans (men) look like” is: White, masc/muscular. And when brought up about not being inclusive with QTPOC, trans-sites throw in one black person + sometimes one latinx person, but not so often Asians. . Sure, there are some Asian trans men I can think of, like Schuyler Bailar, Chella Man, Jake Zyrus (or formerly Charice Pempengco). . In an online trans group I’m in, there’s 17k people in it worldwide + I’ve seen transmasc men put down transfemme (afab) folks + tell them they’re not valid or even a man if they wear makeup. If you think there’s a problem with trans men wearing makeup, then you need to check your transphobia. . The other thing about having mostly White transmasc, muscular men in the media as “representation” is that it’s 1) toxic 2) inaccurate in showing tpoc results for being on T + what to expect, etc. 3) gives cis people this idea that this is what all trans men (should) look like. . Asian trans (or cis) folks don’t typically grow a lot of body/facial hair. Asian folks are stereotypically thin. That being said, (thin) Asians then tend to look “feminine,” even if they’re not. (ie: kpop idols) . I understand dysphoria about your body type + feminine features from pre-t to T. Just saying that there needs to be more representation of transfemme men, on T or not + tpoc in the media. . #qtaapi #qtapi #aapi #api #qtpoc #qpoc #tpoc #queer #melanatedtransmen #trans #thisiswhattranslookslike #transrepresentation #transfemme #transmasc #transgender
In every day, there are 1,440 minutes. That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to be positive and spread positivity. Very few will be positive 100% of those 1,440 minutes...The trick is not to spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. Doors are doors and walls are walls. We must condition ourselves to recognize the difference. Problems are not stop signs; they are simply tough guidelines. Problems help transform, transition and condition. There will never be 'the right time' in your life to do a great thing. You must create that time and greatness will follow. I love you 🥰 ———————————————— #dragkingsofcolor #dragkingsoftheworld #2ndpuberty #tmoc #comfortableinmyownskin #maleillusionist #transisbeautiful #thisiswhattranslookslike #thisiswhattranslooklike #blackboys #blackboyjoy #malestripper #malemodels #malestrippers #showdrag #dragkingshow #blackdragkings #melanatedking #melanatedtransmen #melanatedconversation #sexyandiknowit #advocate #fuckthewall
I’m not a morning person, so excuse the bad picture on the right.. but yesterday marked 5 months post op from top surgery 😱 5 months already, time is flying by. Picture comparison 1 month-5 months (I haven’t used anything but coco butter on my incisions & nipples, I’ll switch to something else next month to see if it makes a difference) Also can we please talk about my body figure change 👀🙏🏽 #like #doubletap #trans #transgender #ftm #ftmtransgender #femaletomale #transandproud #tpoc #poc #transmenofcolor #melanatedmen #melanatedtransmen #vitamint #testosterone #stretchedears #spiderbites #bodymodifications #lgbtq #equality #growing #changing #thisiswhattranslookslike #feelingmyself #bodypositive #topsurgery #postop #selfmade #selfmadenigga
Left 2008- Right 2019 I have like zero pictures of me from 2009 but close enough I guess lol😂 In the past 10 years I've grown and changed a whole lot. I didn't hate my childhood I actually quite enjoyed it things only started to get difficult in 5th grade and then even worse in middle school. It was a little better in High School but there were still some bad times. Then college was hard at first then it got better and now I'm happier than I've been since elementary school and I can thank that to my family, the friends I made in high school, the friends I have in college and my girlfriend for making me the happy man I am today😊
there’s only us when the lights go down, you’re my heaven on earth
I usually hate looking at old photos, because there’s this voice in the back of my head that tells me I have so much more growth to experience before I can feel I’ve gotten anywhere. But f*** that, it’s legit been 10 years. I’m proud of my progress, of where I came from ✊🏾 here’s to another decade of blessings and memories. #ftmfashion #hrt #transman #transguy #transdude #transculture #transgender #femaletomale #ftm #transtakeover #transmenofig #melanatedtransmen #tpoc #selfmademan #transaccount #transvisibility #transequality #transrights #transpride #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful #writer #artist #photographer #tenyearchallenge #10yearchallenge #poc

Lil photo shoot Thursday night before hitting the clubs 🤙🏽🥂 A haircut can make a man feel 1000x better about himself, this is probably my favorite cut so far 🙌🏽 2019 is my year to shine & man is it off to a great start✨💫 I love that I’m seeing the man I’ve always been meant to be 💯 📸 creds to my bro @aprils_finest_aries ✊🏽 #like #doubletap #trans #transgender #ftm #ftmtransgender #femaletomale #transandproud #tpoc #poc #transmenofcolor #melanatedmen #melanatedtransmen #vitamint #testosterone #stretchedears #spiderbites #bodymodifications #lgbtq #equality #thisiswhattranslookslike #bodypositive #selfmade #selfmadenigga #haircut #fresh #lookgoodfeelgood #feelingmyself #handsome

It's a new year and a good time to reinvent yourself and cleanse your life of the things and people that don't make you happy. It's a good time to love yourself and let yourself be loved by only those who are deserving of your true and best self. Also my coat is cute
Today, I feel like a an emotional baseball. My core is tight with anxiety, I'm wrapped in depression, and I have very few spoons due to the physical pain that encases my body. I'm headed back to Portland without a solid surgery date again. It's demoralizing to know that even if everything miraculously resolves, I will find myself in almost the same the position I was a year ago, with just as much uncertainty and risk in my future. _ Trans healthcare is more nightmarish than any cis person, even those who work within the system, can begin to fathom. I've experienced repeated medical trauma over the past several years, but I haven't been given enough space to process most of it to a communicable degree yet. Eventually, I know I need to, so I intend to. My story isn't just mine, and I feel responsibile to tell it for the benefit of similarly situated others. _ For now, I'm trying to live moment by moment. Routine and structure, as much as I desperately need them, aren't possible to achieve presently, so I am trying to re-shift my focus to hold onto the moments of joy I experience, no matter how small or fleeting they may seem in the grand scheme of things. Life is a bitch, but it carries on. _ #phalloplasty #complications #rffphalloplasty #postop #lowersurgery #phallojourney #ftm #trans #transgender #lgbt #LGBTQ #gay #bi #transmen #transguy #transmasculine #melanatedtransmen #qtpoc #tpoc #WontBeErased #transhealth

Word of the day: layers! Skin has three layers- Epidermis (most visible ie skin tone), dermis (right beneath; contains hair follicles and sweat glands), and the subcutaneous layer (fats and connective tissues). Through these layers, skin is able to absorb what it’s fed, into your bloodstream. So if your skincare products are full of chemicals- guess what your insides look like 🗑🤢🤮 Root&Beyond takes away one less concern when living a chemical free life.

In the past, I've hid my body, ashamed of what it was. This year I'm throwing that mindset away! 2019 will be full of positivity and being comfortable in my own skin. It will be a long journey to get to the body I was truly meant to have, but it's a journey I will cherish forever. I hope you all grow love your bodies this year as much as I'm growing to love mine 💙💖💙💖 📸: @cierra.cyn #trans #ftm #transftm #2019 #happynewyear #transgender #transmale #femaletomale #melanatedtransmen #transman #testosterone #transmen #lgbt #asexual #bodypositivity #binder #transflag #transisbeautiful #thisiswhattranslookslike
😊Left is this New Year's and Right is New Year's last year... Happy New Year's Everyone!! I hope everyone has a great 2019!! I hope good things come my way this year... 2018 started out really rough for me I had no friends not at school and not back home. I wasnt eligible to play basketball anymore. I was completely alone and I was miserable I would never want to leave my room not for class and even not to get food. Then I started T in March💉 and I made some friends who never fail to make me laugh and smile, that I am so extremely grateful for if it wasnt for them I'd probably have never left my room until school ended and flunked out of college💜. Then in April I started talking this girl now is amazing, smart, beautiful, caring, funny, and kind and she is now my wonderful girlfriend❤. 2018 taught me a lot of things and I went through a whole lot but I'm stronger than I was before and I'm grateful for that.😊
😊Happy New Years Everyone!!! I'm so happy I got to start the New Year with my wonderful girlfriend❤ I hope everyone has an amazing 2019!!!😊

Just a reminder be careful if you use kt tape or any other tape like it. Clean the skin well, moisturize, DRY the skin well, DONT stretch the tape or as little as possible (reason i have this tear in my skin), and don't wear it too long. Remove with baby oil in the shower...ouch... #ftm #f2m #femaletomale #ftmsofig #trans #transgender #transman #transgenderboy #tboy #xxboys #transpoc #tpoc #mixedboy #prettyboy #facialhair #scruff #beard #curls #tunnels #melanatedtransmen #kttape #facialhair #transandinked #chestbinding #flatchest #ftmproblems #transstruggle

When you think you gone get to your grandparents house early to spend time with them but you get sent to the store for ranch... • • • #okay #why #transgender #transman #ftm #melaninpoppin #melanin #melanatedtransmen #ChristmasEve
@rukiddingme7 gifted me this awesome mini dopp from @stealthbrosco that's designed to discretely store all your shot stuff. I haven't totally figured out the best way to organise it yet but it's awesome to have something that was thoughtful made specifically for my needs. definitely check them out if you're looking for something for a transperson in your life or even if you're just wanting to support a cool company. (They're currently doing a #giveaway !) The large dopps can totally be used as make-up bags or toiletry cases. Personally I have my eyes on them fanny packs 👀👀👀
😊I'm going home tonight to spend Christmas with my family and I'm excited I got some good gifts for my family this year... Speaking of gifts I love my Teen Wolf hoodie that my gf got me for our six months back in October it says Lahey on the back!!😊
even though this is my 50th shot it still took me 3 tries to get it done haha. for any little trans babes out there, I don't think doing your shot gets any easier or harder. I think it's just about becoming comfortable with this pain because it is attached to the joy of being yourself. . . I use to have severe sharps anxiety, as in I jumped up and ran away from a blood test when I was 17. After I came out I knew that I needed testosterone. This compelling feeling is not one that I can explain. I just knew. But I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to administer my shot myself. This fear was crushing. . T has cured so many of my anxieties and given me a home in my body I truly never thought I'd experience. I rarely speak of my faith on here but this healing I experienced has always felt like a nod from God that I am headed in the right direction.
Dadbod bb. 2 months post op top surgery revision. 1 year 3 months post op top surgery (my chest is 15 months old) 1 year and 8 months on testosterone.

Ya boy hit 4 months post op top surgery yesterday!! It’s been 4 freaking months already!! Here’s a comparison from 1 week-now, swipe for a close up. 👀 I did this side by side comparison not only for the chest but for my body too. I’ve been talking about how much weight I’ve lost, & figured I’d share a comparison because I’ve been feeling body positive. I’m not quite where I want to be, but this is definitely giving me the motivation to reach my goals 💯💪🏽 #like #doubletap #trans #transgender #ftm #ftmtransgender #femaletomale #guyslikeus #transandproud #tpoc #poc #transmenofcolor #melanatedmen #melanatedtransmen #vitamint #testosterone #stretchedears #spiderbites #bodymodifications #lgbtq #equality #growing #changing #thisiswhattranslookslike #feelingmyself #bodypositive #topsurgery #postop

Lil nigga been feeling himself lately 👅👀 Hit the gym yesterday with my bro, for the first time in years it felt so amazing. Gonna start going with him more often! I weighed myself before I went, because a lot of people have been telling me I look smaller & I’ve noticed too. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight these past few couple months, I went from about 188 to 171. Went to the mall yesterday to try on pants because mine have been falling off, I’ve lost another pant size!! I know I’ve been saying it a lot, but I’m really starting to love myself. I’ve got body goals I want to meet, & I’ve finally find my motivation 🙏🏽💯 This also marks shot #86 #like #doubletap #trans #transgender #ftm #ftmtransgender #femaletomale #guyslikeus #transandproud #tpoc #poc #transmenofcolor #melanatedmen #melanatedtransmen #vitamint #testosterone #stretchedears #spiderbites #bodymodifications #lgbtq #equality #growing #changing #thisiswhattranslookslike #feelingmyself #bodypositive
