Hey, everyone! This is going to be a short introductory post, just putting my name out there and a little about what I do.

I'm a transgender woman, finishing my last requirement for my Bachelor's degree in English. I've been on hormones for about two years, 'out' for about a year,  and living full-time for about 6 months.

I constantly find myself discussing transgender issues with those I hang around with at college, some for, some against. In either case, we've had great talks, and it's motivated me to start a blog, both to give me a platform to talk about whatever trans-related issues come up, and to, if people take interest in my blog, perhaps answer questions people have.

So, that's pretty much it for now. If anyone has any questions to kick-start this blog, leave em' in the comments section.



  1. Yay for new trans* blog! Discussion is always important, particulary when dealing with things like trans* issues, due to society being so ignorant when it comes to said issues. Well done for adding to the discussions!

    Hmm, and a question to kick-start. Alright, how about this: It seems to be that there has been a recent upsurge in the amount of trans* people being portrayed in the media, particularly TV. Do you think this is the case? And what are your general thoughts about the portrayal of trans* people in the media?

  2. Excellent idea, and I'll tackle this when I write my next post :)

  3. I have heard that trans women of color are at greater risk of discrimination than white trans women. It makes me wonder if there is a racial divide within the trans community or disagreement about which problems need fixed first. Do you have any thoughts n that?
