Two selfies a year apart.
Its hard to look at a past you're running away from.
I don't wish to forget who I was. In a lot of ways I feel who I am now is who I've always been. I do wish for others to forget who I was. I wish I could wipe clean my slate instead of having to draw over it. Old photos and images of myself remind me of how trapped and helpless I felt. They are hard to look at it.
I'm an artist and I'm painting myself over a used canvas, and the layers that came before mine will always be there but they won't represent my art as how it should be seen. #trans#transftm#ftmtrans#transgendermale#transmasc#transgender#ftm#lgbt#lgbtq#queer
Happy pride from me and my two best friends who are very different from each other but each hold the two spaces closest to my heart. Unknowingly, the two of you have taken turns helping me through times in my life where I felt like I couldn’t get any lower. One helped me through my first heartbreak and the deepest depression I had in high school, then the other took me in when I was put out on the street and had absolutely no one else to turn to. One of you helped me discover that I was trans while the other helped me navigate it, but both of you have never wavered in your undying support as I stumble along my journey. I love both of you more than I’ve ever loved anyone and you’ve been the only family I’ve ever had that’s never turned me away or tried to compromise on who I am. The two of you are so beautiful and every day I am astonished at your kindness and generosity. You’re both so brilliant in your own separate ways and destined for success in your fields. I’m so glad to know you both. Happy pride. I’m so proud to have you in my life. #trans#transman#transmen#transmenofig#transmenofinstagram#transgender#transgenderftm#transgendermale#transgenderman#ftm#ftmtrans#ftmtransgender#ftmfitness#ftmtransition#hrt#hormonereplacementtherapy#pride#pridemonth#pride2019#nashvillepride
I called myself a lesbian for a year in college before coming out for a second time as pansexual and panromantic. This means that I personally don't care what gender my partner identifies as; it's the other qualities about them that matter.
I really struggled before coming out again, because I felt as though I was "betraying" the lesbian community by admitting that yes, I was also attracted to men. I'd internalized a lot of biphobia, along with the strange notion that exclusively dating women made me "more of a man". The word "lesbian" didn't feel right as a descriptor for me, either — what was it about identifying as a woman who loved other women that felt so off?
To help alleviate some of my stress, I went to my therapist with my worries. This is an account of that session, and how I learned to stop conflating sexual orientation with gender identity.

Im back again. As your local canon emo kid. Im going to bp's. happy birthday to me •
✨Lucas talking about his insecurities of a gay relationship between a trans guy and a cis guy.✨ So basically. Most of the time I am afraid that he isn't really bisexual and will not love me as he do now since I am pre-transition. I am scared that he won't love me once I get facial hair and my boobs leave the chat. But on the other side for me he takes this so well. Once someone asked him "but how do you guys have sex?" and his answer was hilarious "So basically I take his head, slowly put it in my lap and then I FUCK HIS EAR WHAT DO YOU THINK?!" Idk why I am even insecure about this relationship but I simply am and thats okey. -🐍
