1.5 years transitioning w testosterone on June 7th, 2012.
been good and challenging times. im happy with myself emotionally/ physically. went thru depression with reducing dosage(painful 4.5 months)
the adventures of naijaboi continues. picture from the Philly Trans Health Conference June 2012. had an incredible time showing my film and meeting good brown folks.
These underwear. I desire them. For reasons. *paws at screen* I can feel pretty AND right at the same time.
i found a site for folks to purchase:
If you are an American trans guy who can’t get T because of lack money or your insurance doesn’t cover it, you may be able to get it for free directly from the pharmaceutical company that makes it.
One example is ‘Abbot’ who produce Androgel. They have a website (linked below) that is…
where’s the love 4 people transitioning after 1yr?
i wish i saw more in the community for folks who have been transitioning past 1yr. seems most articles/ videos/ etc are about the journey to come and all the great things that transitioning will bring. reminds me how this culture loves things that are pretty and young because you can commodify it for money and fun. what happens after the excitement fazes and its past a year, do people forget about you and your troubles/newsness?
there are many things that happen the 9 month-15month mark i would love to hear about especially when it comes to how your emotional and spiritual health are doing. how are you relating to your constantly changing body and face? how are you relating to how society treats you? how are you relating to the person that is on the inside of your body transformation? is your spirit still transcending gender or have your brought into the gender binary?
i would love to hear these stories and im sure people would love to hear mine. i will see if i can write and/or do a video im march. im starting to de-transition and have many things to say about it and the journey i’ve been on.
ok folks give some love to the folks on the journey past a year. they need as much love, attention, support as the folks either taking their first shot or speaking their identity out into the world for the first time. to the folks with some bruised knees on this journey of gender exploration i give you shout outs and much love because i know how much you, i and we need it.
take care all the bois/gender non conforming/ gender queer/ trans.
Thoughts of Detransitioning - Postgender
Introspection into their life. Their transition, gender, society and privilege. Choices they have made, the effects those decisions have made and issues subscribing and relating to the male identity.
Very interesting imo.
I am not ashamed nor afraid to show myself anymore. I’ve been working very hard to find inner peace with my mind&body. 8months ago my body didn’t look like this. PROGRESSION=HAPPINESS
Laidbaqq’s 2 years on T slideshow. Neat to see the changes that occur after the first year!
Japanese professional speedboat racer Hiromasa Ando, dominated the sport as a woman for 18 years and built a reputation as a strong competitor, before transitioning to a man in 2002 at the age of 39. Ando has found acceptance by both the general public and the Japan Motorboat Racing Federation. The JMRF adapted its rules for him until he could complete his sex change surgery at Okayama University Hospital. “I think they’ve made an amazing decision,” Ando told Shukan Shincho magazine. “I was reborn. I am the happiest person on Earth today.” Hiromasa Ando came fifth in a field of six in the Sports Nippon Cup Osaka Award race held in Suminoe Ward after his transition. ”I feel great. I could participate as my real self,” Ando said, who was racing for the first time since December that year.
Who cares if someone is a feminine ftm or masculine mtf… We are all human beings. Gay, straight, asexual, bi, genderqueer etc… we are all human beings and should be treated with respect!
Seriously, I am still seeing post bashing those who natural transition or bash those who are ftm and just happens to be feminine. This is not acceptable at all. I see so much hate in the community especially towards bisexuals and again, it is not acceptable. It should not matter if someone is or isn’t “of the norm”(as society say), we are all human.
