In just one week

Lady Gaga said “transgender” live during the Super Bowl.

Laverne Cox said “gender nonbinary” live at the Grammys.

National Geographic released a documentary about trans/nonbinary people called ‘Gender Revolution’.

Tens of millions of cisgender people witnessed this and are now learning more about them. Trans/nonbinary people witnessed this and are now feeling seen, valid, and loved.

2017 is shaping up to be the year of trans/nonbinary visibility.

[TRANS] SPRING DAY - BTS

Miss you
saying this makes me miss you more
i miss you even though im looking at your photo
time is so cruel, i hate us
seeing each other for once is so hard between us

it’s all winter here even in August
my heart is running on the time alone on the snowpiercer
i wanna get to the other side of the earth holding your hand 
wanna put an end to this winter
how much longing should we see snowing down to have the days of spring, friend

like the tiny dust like tiny dust floating in the air
will i get to you a little faster if i was the snow in the air 

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring 
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

is it you who changed or is it me?
i hate this moment that this time flows
we are changing you know, just like everyone you know 
yes i hate you, you left me 
but i never stopped thinking about you, not even a day
honestly i miss you but ill erase you
cuz it hurts less than to blame you

i try to exhale you in pain like smoke, like white smoke
i say that ill erase you but i cant really let you go yet

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you

you know it all, youre ma best friend
the morning will come again 
no darkness, no season can last forever

maybe its cherry blossoms and this winter will be over 
i miss you i miss you 
wait a little bit, just a few more nights
ill be there to see you, ill come for you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

Trans guys are allowed to and desire to be strictly masculine in their presentation.
Yes gender norms are total horse manure but I’m a guy who wants to present entirely masculine. Not just androgynous.
Stop telling trans people that ‘you of all people should understand that boys should wear dresses or makeup, too!’ I wanted to die when I wore dresses and I don’t think that’s changed. I don’t mind makeup but even still I don’t wear it in a way that society sees as typically feminine so leave me and other masculine trans guys alone!!!
If you’re a trans guy who doesn’t feel comfortable presenting typically feminine in any way this post is for you. I totally understand. You aren’t a bad person and you aren’t reinforcing negative gender stereotypes.

to all the transwomen who are fetishized by being called “chicks with dicks, traps, trannys, etc.”

to all the transwomen who are told “i don’t date penises” or “i only date vaginas” by cis men/women

to all the transwomen who are attacked by terfs daily

to all the transwomen who do not want to have surgery

to all the transwomen who want to have surgery

to all the transwomen who are called rapists just because they want to use the bathroom

to all the transwomen who experience dysphoria

to all the transwomen who do not experience dysphoria

to all the transwomen who required to pass as cis because they fear for their lives

to all of the transwomen who are afraid to come out

you are beautiful and i love you.

  • “This is fun. I’m so proud,” Maldonado said during the meeting. “I am accepted, and I’m actually in Boy Scouts.”
  • Maldonado’s mom, Kristie, fought back tears as she watched her son participate in his first meeting in Maplewood. Read more

Here’s to the trans men who can’t come out because of their parents.

Who still have to wear frilly blouses and girls’ jeans because they have no boys clothes.

Who don’t have binders yet.

Who can’t start hormones and aren’t allowed to have hormone blockers.

Who get deadnamed by strangers.

Who still have long hair because they aren’t allowed to get it cut.

You’re still manly, and handsome, and I’m sorry you were born to people who don’t deserve you. Hang in there boys, because someday you’ll be able to escape this awful closet. You won’t be stuck like this forever, I promise.
