Wearing Purple this Weekend.

I am wearing purple in support of those who have been bullied.  It's time that this scourge is confronted. Let's wrap our arms around those who have been bullied and harassed and tell them that we love them.

Beyond Labels

This past Thursday the Beyond Labels ministry at church met to discuss ideas for the coming year. Many wonderful ideas were presented. I mentioned that Transgender Day of Remembrance was coming up next month. I informed the group that I will be attending the ceremony at the community center. Some folks may come in support.

The assistant pastor is writing something about transphobia.  I am gathering materials about the origins of Transgender Day of Remembrance.  My wife stated publically that she fully supports me. One of my desires is to reach out to transgender people who may be stealth or struggling. What I'm really pleased about is that people of faith both LGBTQI and straight are involved in spearheading this outreach.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

This year has gone by so fast! The elections are less than a month away, transgender day of remembrance ceremonies come up next month,  and once again Thanksgiving and Christmas will be upon us. 

2012 has been a big year for transgender people in that many communities around the country are even discussing this issue. There have been some victories, some defeats. What has been consistent in my life is the desire to share with others what being transgender is. There have been inroads in my place of worship and within the community that I live in. I have seen more trans folks here and there on the street. The trans community is largely invisible. 

I'm aware of some concerns (safety) but I cannot let that stop me. With each passing day my trans identity is being defined and refined. I sense that there will be more internal changes in the future. I am thankful for an accepting and understanding mate who has come to terms with my transgenderism.

Each day presents us with a new opportunity to improve ourselves.

Getting Back To Normal

September was a very trying month. My sister was evicted from her apartment while she was in the hospital. My wife was in the hospital for three days. My brother and I handled the storage and moving affairs. My wife is much better now. I haven't been on the forums or posting much lately but now I'm getting back to normal.
