It’s dark and I’m listening to my high school art teacher’s band in the park at #Summerfest, omg. (at The Common Ground)
Not exactly sure what my hair is doing, but ok.
Without you, I don’t just lose a person but breathing poetry.
Cutest couple 2k14.
It’s not that I want your pity - I don’t - I want you to understand. I want you to know what it’s like to feel trapped. There are no good mornings. I wake up feeling a new set of tiny reminders that started protruding from my face the night before. I dig deep into the layers of my skin with a razor every morning as if it was a shovel digging up past regrets. I’m left with a speckled gray mark highlighted with red dashes and dots that won’t erase. I worry that the 5 layers of makeup I just put on won’t cover my shadow - because it doesn’t. I’m never in public without it feeling like a stage.
I can’t afford the $30,000 it would cost for bottom surgery. I can’t afford the $12 - 18,000 it would cost for facial feminization surgery. But I can hope to at least be able to stroke my face without wanting to kill myself literally everYTIME. I don’t need a mirror to be reminded.
I’ve already had 6 laser appointments with my own money. It wasn’t enough and I’m broke since I lost my job in August. This will lessen my anxiety and depression. This could prevent my suicide. This could prevent me from being assaulted. This will lessen all the scars. Please donate (unless it will make you less financially secure then please don’t) and share this!
I’m in love with this beautiful woman.
Two women at #NYCPride said we’re so cute together. We’re basically perfect. @yungcigarettebox gives me life tbh. <3 (at Washington Square Park)
On the train to NYC for Pride! Nervous to meet the bae, @yungcigarettebox. <3 (at Babylon (LIRR station))

I love this shot from the march.
I was intense at #TransMarchLI. (at Nassau County Legislature Teddy Roosevelt Building)
Hundreds to gather tomorrow for Long Island’s first ever transgender march for civil rights. Cis or trans, be there and write history with us. We will get GENDA passed. We will make a legitimate difference. Because we wont stop until we do. Leave the bars for Pride and hit the streets.
We’re taking our democracy back from inaction. We’re taking our rights.
