Remember We’re Living 2007

The Transgender Day of Remembrance fills so many of us with fear and sadness, and while I think it’s a vital part of the trans community’s consciousness raising, I also think we need to celebrate who we are, the victories we’ve had, both personally and as a community.

My goal in posting this is to allow people to post whatever it is about their own past year that has increased their pride, happiness, or visibility as a trans person, partner, friend or family member of a trans person, so I’ll start, since mine is easy: it’s been a pleasure and an honor to have published my 2nd book about being married to Betty, to have seen our relationship not just weather the complications of our life but thrive, and to see Betty become even more of the person she needs to be.

This year, in particular, it seems like the perfect precursor for American trans, since it’s the day before Thanksgiving.

So, your turn:

  1. This is the year I finally came out of puberty and feel and look like the adult man I always knew I could be. Also after a lot of hard work in 2006, this year has been one in which my family has been really healed and together. I am more thankful for that than anything, my loving partner and our 3 year old son. I know when my mother realized I was different this is what she feared I would never have. But I do, and my family is great.
