Note: Top Surgery Playlist starts with newest/latest 1.5 Years Post-Op video.
Note: The last one is more for my own reference, as I’ve been doing a lot of research and have traded my gym membership in for trying out a completely calisthenics based work-out program.
All moved in with the help of some amazing friends and family, a long weekend of unpacking and organizing! So, as promise, here’s some photo spam of the new apartment. Couldn’t be happier with it! Already feels like home.
First lazy Sunday “Photo Booth Selfies” of 2014.
Complete with bedhead, coffee, haven’t cleaned up my beard and/or neck in like a week, and haven’t changed out of my sleep attire yet.
Earlier this week I was contacted by the HRC to help support their #LoveConquersHate program - which I without hesitance agreed to do so, as it is a cause that is so extremely important while we gear up for the Olympics this winter in Sochi.
While we celebrate some of the world’s most gifted athletes, I implore you to keep in mind that its location is a burning reminder of the heinous pattern of anti-LGBT conduct that still remains in most parts of this world. We are still fighting so many battles here in the US for equality for all, but Sochi reminds us of how much work there is to do globally. To learn more please visit loveconquershate.org, and if you can, join the campaign. It is more important than ever, for those of us who can (LGBT folks and allies included) to speak up and continue to fight, especially for those who can not.
I’ll leave you with a quote that I personally remind myself of very often, “[to fight and to live is] to remember those who came before us.That we who face the world today can live for what they no longer can” - and in this case, for those who can’t even live with the freedom to be themselves.
Here at Queerty, we love celebrating the male form. We like our men in all shapes, sizes, and colors. And trans men are no exception. There are some seriously sexy ones out there. We’ve searched the internet and compiled some of the most sexy below. Scroll down to see just a few of our favorites.
So, an old friend I went to middle school with just sent me this article/blog post on Facebook and was like “Oh my god, isn’t that you?!” - and sure enough the article features two photos of me (which, ironically, I think they are saying are two different people haha).
Kind of crazy and surreal, but really flattering though!
3.5 Years on Testosterone (face + body).
THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT MAN. OH MY LORD.
I very rarely reblog my own photos, but can we just talk about how ridiculously kind people are on Tumblr? Seriously, can we? ‘Cause it kind of blows my mind.
10. Are you good at hiding your feelings? (Previously answered)
I think when I get in a bad place, or am having a hard time, I just tend to keep it all inside - it’s a combination of pride, and not wanting to bother or worry anyone. So, I tend to keep it inside, and attempt to deal with it on my own. If that is being “good at hiding my feelings” than I guess yes.
Here ya go - this is my unflattering long day at the office, walked home in the snow storm, came home put my comfy clothes on, and am getting ready to cook dinner selfie.
36. 3 dreams you want to fulfill?
- Travel more, and see more of other countries and experience other cultures.
- Meet the right woman, get married and start a family together.
- Work my way up in my career to my dream job of Creative Director.
Thanks for participating!
After what happened this past week, it’s been a week(end) of a lot of music, a lot of doctor appointments, a lot of contemplation, and a lot of time with my parents whom I am so extremely thankful for, as they are my rock, are always there for me, and are always there to pick me up when I fall.
Also, I want to thank everyone who responded to my post Thursday, sent asks, and private messages of love and support. It really means the world to me! I will be responding to things tomorrow once I am home again, but wanted to just send out a general thank you now. I appreciate it more than you could possibly know. Thank you!
