I’m only about 2.5 weeks post op, and I’m Not supposed to raise my arms anywhere near above my head– but marching with women for women felt like the best excuse to do so. (I only took off my shirt for this photo, I’m not completely neglecting my scars or healing).
National Foundation Day (建国記念の日 Kenkoku Kinen no Hi) is a national holiday in Japan celebrated annually on February 11, celebrating the foundation of Japan and the accession of its first emperor, Emperor Jimmu on 11 February 660 BC
I spent my evening with people that I have known since I was 14, back when I was awkward and spent more time with teachers at social events than other kids my age. I was shy and focused all my energy into school work and sports to ignore what I felt about myself. People that have known me since before I came out as a lesbian, then queer, then trans. I hadn’t seen them since I started this transition and I was pretty nervous, but the night was perfect and exactly what I needed. Only positivity and love and goodness. The people in your life that matter only want you happy, and even as time passes they stay the same consistent rocks you can count on. tonight I was very happy, sharing that happiness with people that I count very dear to me and missed very much. ❤
