Not gonna lie changing gender can take it’s toll on ones mental strength. From stares and comments from people on the street to being mocked and ridiculed. Loved ones having difficulties accepting me and can’t bring themselves to even attempt to use my name after changing it a year ago. To being stuck in limbo to medically transition due to incredibly long waiting lists. But I have no desire to ever go back #transgender#trans#lgbt#prejudice#waitinglist#savethenhs
LGBTQAI+ youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to heterosexual youth. In a national study, 40% of transgender adults reported having made a suicide attempt. 92% of these individuals reported having attempted suicide before the age of 25.
Out of 48 total portraits I have taken to date, more than half have been Lesbian, Gay, Trans, Non- Binary, Questioning, Intersex individuals. All of their stories have stemmed from some sort of abuse related to who they are their journey to find that. I urge you all to turn your finger inward and do some self work before you question or judge. Chances are, your ignorance is doing more harm than you realize. We can all do better and be better. We can all keep learning not only for ourselves, but for those that have suffered at the hands of others ignorance.
Voltron unpopular opinion(maybe? Idk lemme know if you agree): I don't like Keith very much and I feel like Keith and Lance (and the ship Klance in general) is WAYYYY over-hyped in the VLD fandom. Like it's a reasonable ship with quite a few scenes to support it and it can be cute sometimes, but there are so many great ships and characters that are being slept on(I actually love Lance as you can tell by my photo, but he's a tiny bit over-hyped as a character too). HunkxShay is practically canon and I barely see anything for their ship or even their characters!!! Why y'all not giving my angels Hunk and Shay the love they deserve??? Plus I don't see Pidge for a lot of stuff too, I see her a little more than Hunk and Shay but I still think she deserves more appreciation. AND FINALLY WHY DOES NO ONE DRAW OR TALK ABOUT CORAN. PEOPLE DRAW SLAV AND KEITH'S MOM/DAD MORE AND THEY ONLY SHOWED UP FOR LIKE ONE OR TWO EPISODES EACH. if you know an artist or writer that does a lot of stuff other than Klance then dm me, cause as much as I love my bois, I also adore the other characters in the series. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk ✌
