Busy Summer

This summer has been an interesting one for me. I've met a lot of wonderful people. I've done some performing and open mic. I have been asked to host an event in September and possibility be a facilitator at one of the support meetings. As you can see I'm stretching out a bit.

What can  I expect for the fall I'm not certain. For TGLBQI people life could get rough if the political climate is any indication. I'm very interested in local and state politics because what bills and laws are passed and enacted could have a huge effect on us. It's important that we stay engaged and involved in whatever endeavor we do.

A Voice In Trying Times

I have been sharing my story a number of times this summer. I have an internet radio show of which I share God's word from the transgender perspective. At the present time this is my current mission. There are so many ways of being an advocate for trans rights and this seems to be my path.

I can sit idly by while trans people are being attacked (verbally as well as physically) by the forces who wish to destroy us. In this cantankerous political climate, it's vital to be a source of encouragement as many people need it.

Insults Hurled at Me

A couple of times this past week I  had  insults hurled in my direction. I'm not surprised. I'm still going on and living my life. Doesn't stop me one bit.

Spoke At Evening Church Service

Last night I was a reflector at our evening service at church. I spoke about my life journey and how God has been there. I mentioned that journeys are unique to each individual and that there are many twists and turns. I shared the poem below at the end of the 3 minute reflection.


I never traveled this road before
Lined with thick brush and boulders
It looks strange and forboding
There's nothing familiar here to guide me.

Each step forward is a step closer 
To an unknown destination.
What awaits me, I know not
But I trek on.

I'm nudged ahead
By an unseen hand.
I turn around and
The footprints of my life are gone.

Genevieve's Gems

Be proud of who you are. Love yourself. Don't let others define who you are. Define yourself. Each person is beautiful and unique.

Self Acceptance

Self acceptance is the first step towards self-discovery. Once I accepted who I was, the pieces of the puzzle began to fit. My feelings of difference became clearer when I started to cross dress. The struggles and tensions dissipated upon my self acceptance.

I never felt shame or guilt that I like to wear women's clothing. It felt so natural to me. t took me over a year to feel comfortable in my own skin. When that happened, there was no turning back. I have to hold back the tears because I'm so happy.

How can we love others if we cannot love ourselves? Self loathing can stifle the love others want to give. Be who you are! Let no one define who you are; define yourself. Love yourself! You are beautiful and unique. There are people who love you for being you.

Genevieve's Gems

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.

~John Steinbeck, Author (1902-1968)

I will be speaking at the evening service at church on August 14th as a reflector. My topic will be on journeys. It is so true in the spiritual realm as well as in my transgender trek. We all are on journeys. Like a good mystery there are many twists and turns. Journeys can take us to many places and can last for years. Whatever we choose or choose not to do, the journey goes on.

Thinking About A Name Change

I have been mulling over getting a name change the past few months. It was one of the those areas that I always kept an open door. I have been encouraged to do so. I will do more research and sharing with my spouse. This will be a life changing event if I do it.
