Transgender couple make history with birth of their first child
Transgender man and transgender woman become parents.

A transgender man has given birth after conceiving with his transgender wife, The Independent reports. The couple is the first transgender couple in South America to do so. 

Fernando Machado, who was assigned female at birth, and his partner Diane Rodriguez, who was assigned male, welcomed their first child.

‘Being a mother was never something I thought I would do because I am a transsexual,’ Ms. Rodriguez says  to The Daily Mail:

'The law before demanded that to be recognized as a woman you had to be castrated.’

In 2013 she became the he first transgender candidate to run for Congress in Ecuador.

HEY GUESS WHAT!! I just released the second chapter of my comic Fast Food Friends! Check it out >>> here <<<

This chapter deals with some LGBT concepts and I decided on this for the second chapter because I really wanted to make all my characters identities clear. I would absolutely adore if you checked it out and reblogged this post to get the word out! Thank you <3

p.s. sorry this chapter is late!! i had an ER visit, i moved, and i actually rewrote the chapter halfway thru drawing it… more info on the page !!

I’m the type of person that says I don’t have a type, if we vibe we vibe. But as I lay here and think of all the ppl I’ve been interested in I’ve found a subconscious trend. I tend to prefer those with brown skin tones and noses on the lager side. Like Idgaf if ur female, male, both, transitioning, or neither you just have to have those two things. And that’s crazy to think my openminded ass has a type…I’m intrigued.

Planned Parenthood is fucking amazing, y’all. I haven’t been there yet…but just talking to their HRT line on the phone…

They used my respected name right off the bat. Called me Riley all the way through. Used he/him pronouns. Didn’t slip up once. Asked me and “What’s your legal name? I’m sorry I have to ask that.”

Then asked me “Now is it okay if I send things with Riley Roswell to your home?” not wanting to out me accidentally and then “Is it okay if I send stuff with planned parenthood labels on them or do you want me to be discreet about it?” knowing there are people who could get in trouble with family or partners or others for going there.

OH MY GOD I’M GOING TO CRY AND THEY DIDN’T JUDGE ME AT ALL

THEY WERE TOTALLY ACCEPTING AND ANSWERED ALL MY STUPID FUCKING BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT HRT ABOUT WHAT THE APPT WAS GONNA BE LIKE

AND SHE WAS SO KIND AND SO UNDERSTANDING

AND SHE RESPECTED ME SO MUCH AND I WAS SO HAPPY

I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE LIKE THAT EXIST IN OUR WORLD.

OH MY GOD.

AND I’M GOING TO BE GOING TO THIS WONDERFUL PLACE ON THE 29TH!!!!!!!!
