Transgender scholarship for TG students in Washington State

Pretty cool. These scholarships are popping up all over the place. Will post more info as I stumble across them. I don't know any TG students in Washington, but maybe you do!

Have a fab day!

Class discussion: hats and gender

In a discussion on gender today, one of my classes classified caps as masculine, hats as feminine. Interestingly enough they noted that visors were in the middle (TG) and fedoras and cowboy hats were masculine. Lady Gaga inventions were labelled "supernatural"

TRANSform Me was good, saw my first ep on Monday. I wanted more TRANS back stories and perspective (which was doled out in small manageable doses for the middle class). The Glambulance needs a make-over.

TRANSform Me

Ah, yes, TG women of fashion and beauty take over VHI.

No, ladies, it's not RuPaul, but three smashing TG women who travel the US in the Glambulance to do make-overs on deserving women who have been wronged, abused, or just need a break.


On tonight. At 10:30

Happy St. Paddy's ...shrink session was good today

Or to steal from one of the great TG authors of her time "Erin go braless" (snare drum, high hat). Things are well in the gender blended south of my home. Well, except boring domestic stuff like touch up painting and the like that must be done soon.

Had an interesting session with the old shrink today. She seems to think my gender dysphoria is becoming more intense, and suggests that I spend a weekend in Provincetown or San Fran to explore how I would feel living as a woman, or rather a trans woman full time.

I tend to accommodate my partner so much I often neglect myself. She's all for me trying a low dose of hormones again, but I'm cautious now. Though my body would probably react better to a corrected dosage, I still pause. But why?

Afraid of secrets, I think, or afraid of my truth. My own naked self that is struggling to get out of my head and skin and into the world.

Anyways. Cheers. Have a beer, I'm having several. Erin go bragh

Notes to my body

I am not my body
but an ideal beyond body
I am flesh and not flesh and clay to be molded
by chemicals beyond my reach.
I am I am I
