“Somebody told me a story where they met a celebrity when they were six years old, and the celebrity was really mean. They still remember that to this day. 

I never want some 22-year-old in ten years’ time to say, ‘I met Madelaine Petsch and it ruined my idea of celebrities’, so I’m always aware.”

Like, I support the fuck out of trans girls and young trans women, don’t get me wrong. But it would be nice to see some more pics of middle-aged and older trans women, too.

Trans Day of Visibility!

My name is Kal (he/him). Two years ago I came out to all my family and friends. A lot has changed in those twenty-four months: a name, a voice, a smile — a perspective, among other things. I like to think who I am has not changed, but more how much of myself I share and how am with others. I’m the same as before, except I’m more honest.

I still carry sadness and find myself still dissatisfied with my form, my state of mind, my living situation. I suppose that means I have more growing to do.

Two years down, one lifetime ahead.
