Then (high school and middle school) and now, at 38. I’m bi, trans, Latino, and neuroatypical. None of these things alone defines me, but they intersect in interesting and often difficult ways.

I transitioned as an adult, 6 years ago. My only regret was waiting so long.

Today is Trans Day of Visibility, and, well… yeah, we’re visible, all right. Visible as the right’s newest scapegoat. Bathroom panic laws are even going so far as to use terms like “common sense” and “moral objection” to demonize us, not even bothering to hide behind religion.

Help make our visibility a positive thing. Cis people, be allies in places where we aren’t visible. Fight bathroom panic laws down to the local school board level, but go beyond that – examine how pervasive casual transphobia is in our society and how “jokes” and the perception of “men in dresses” shape the still-pervasive beliefs that we are deceivers, deviants, sub-human. Let us tell our own stories in media, from writing to acting. Especially listen to the voices that are suppressed the most - trans women of color. Be interested in our lives and struggles beyond “The Surgery” and see how trans liberation advances society as a whole. Look beyond the “bravery” of transition (and how it erases trans people who do not want to or cannot transition) and help remove the obstacles to our existence that require such courage in the first place.

Anyone, my inbox is open if you need to talk.
