Happy International Transgender Visibility Day 2014!
How auspicious that today was when I received my official approval for gender confirmation surgery! Oh happy day! Now, the next chapter begins, with its own ups and downs, I'm sure.
As for visibility, I see more and more of our stories as trans* and genderqueer folks being told in the public sphere, in film and TV, in social media, and in book form. Lets all keep telling our stories and push to have a more authenticity and humanity in the portrayals of our lives in our media and culture. When we are truly visible, we bring immense value to the table of humanity.
Happy International Transgender Visibility Day!
