(Just to be clear, I'm having a wicked evening and this isn't urgent). I'm so uncomfortable when I think about the guys that make me dysphoric and how it's IMPOSSIBLE for me to ever look like they do. How do non-transition folks deal with this heartache?

Love, I feel you. I really do. But…you’ve seen Trans Selfie Tuesday, right?

And if that glorious tag doesn’t convince you of the endless possibilities, how about professional trans models. Who get paid to be hot. Mm-hm.

Balian Buschbaum, Billy Castro, Ryan Sallens, Loren Cameron, Ashley de la Cruz (pictured here with trans lady model Valentijn de Hingh), Trevon Haynes, and Arin Andrews (pictured here with trans lady model Katie Hill) are all trans male models.

Not to mention gorgeous trans lady models like Isis King, Jenna Talackova, Lea T, Andreja Pejic, Ines Rau, Amiyah Scott, and Carmen Carrera.

Plus, Ryley Pogensky and Erika Linder are two outstanding self-identified genderqueer / non-binary models.

Here’s the cool thing: I could go on! There are tons and tons of other handsome / gorgeous / stunning trans models. I’m just scratching the surface with these links.

TBH, this is undeniable proof that transgender proof are literal miracles and can look however they darn fricking well want to.

(Sure, it takes time, but hey, maybe that’s the source of our power.)

Basically what I’m trying to say is: that’s how we deal. We don’t give up. Because maybe we didn’t start out properly, but boy howdy, are we going places!!
