Happy Valentine's Day, My Trans Valentines!
Hey, that rhymed. Sometimes the poet in me comes out at unexpected times. But back to the post.
#MyTransValentine will go to a long list of people
I take that role seriously as your adopted aunt, and I'm just as proud of all of you as you have repeatedly told me you are proud of me for simply living your lives. I'm even more proud to witness that and some of you have stepped up to be the eloquent and amazing leaders the entire community needs now and not just for your peer group.
Love y'all just as much as y'all have told me on numerous occasions that you love me.
The Mama Bears have begun to add to that mission of protecting their kids, being the moms and dads many adult trans people lost when their blood families turned their backs on them for transitioning.
It's needed and necessary to help some of the adult trans folks in that situation heal from the hurt and pain that separation caused.
You've also been there for me when I've needed to vent or get some 'ejumacation' on how to navigate the world while inhabiting a feminine body and look fly while doing so.
And finally, my last Trans Valentine goes to you loyal TransGriot readers. Some of you donate on a regular basis to my blog, while others of you share my posts and tweets. It's thanks to you I've been around for 11 years, over 10K poss and 6.5 million hits since 2006 and i deeply appreciate it..
Happy Valentine's Day, my trans valentines.
