transasian

I love all the trans-Asians I’m seeing. Being Asian and queer can be really tough I know my parents will never be supportive because of the Filipino culture they grew up in and are so locked into. Stay strong my Asian trans-siblings. Happy Visibility Day.

anonymous asked:

I told a story on my blog once about how I went to a mostly white school (I'm white) and the only Asian kid in my grade was my best friend and I'd help him defend himself from racist bullies and eventually people in my school started referring to me as an "honorary Asian" because 1) my best friend was Asian and 2) I "looked like an anime character" because I'm thin and have long straight orange hair. I got an anon that told me I should start identifying as "transAsian". Lord help me.

He has fresh rosemary & a dark magenta petunia in his pocket as accent colors/accessories. He had input & reviews of his outfit prior (phew!). He eagerly awaits outside for his date to arrive.


Anniversary times: L'ecole for restaurant week & followed by meandering/shopping/wine & pizza with @discochancer! Dreamy. I cannot begin to tell you how delicious the food was, also our view was a window seat. More food photos later because it would be sacrilege to keep it from y'all!] #dapperq #queerbrownlove #qpoc #qtpoc #transpeopleofcolor #transmenofcolor #transasian #disabilityiscute #sickanddisabledqueers #sickqueertimes #brownboichronicals #brownboi #bowtie #purple #blazer #herbs #datenight #qtpocsupremacy #swoon

[Description: text in headline reads- “New Trans Voices: Hear From the Trans Poets Workshop NYC.” Below is a portrait of a brown trans guy’s big black pointy hair, bespectacled face, stern gaze.
P.s. I think when Advocate said “new” they likely meant new to The Gays. Ah, jokes.

My poem “Homebois Don’t Write Enough” is featured in The Advocate with other mighty Trans poets NYC style! I know, how did I (and other trans / people of color) sneak passed the gate? Miracle or mayhem? May I please have my Gay Equality perks now?! http://t.co/yZqWFCFrxN

[Description: a colorful marquee that says ‘mayn’ vertically shines brightly in a chicago twilight sky. Below that, the marquee reads in capital letters, “TRANS 100.” It was an honor to have worked with the #trans100 this year and see a just peak of the breadth of transgender dopeness work being done in the u.s. empire. From daring chosen fam like @roldiboi, @dr__handsome, & @queenezak to the work of @tjjourian, to the tech community justice of @fakerapper, to the cutting edge amazing of @merbabegoddess, @lavernecox, and @janetmock, I am deeply humbled by #transgender #POC who nourish this vast movement. This world is better due to just your breath. I’m eternally grateful to be a witness. Shouts to all the #sickanddisabledqueer transgender people who couldn’t make it out, to the trans fam working & surviving too busy for pause, to the #tpoc perceived as crazy or weird or so lonely. To the too foreign or immigrant transgender fam policed and in layers of struggle. To the genderqueer non-binary trans people who live so many realities in one body. I held you in my heart because y'all are home everyday whether we know it or not. Say what you will about awards or ceremonies, but when you witness names of transgender people one after another in applause & in mass together, it’s a visceral spiritual experience that we (in our vast range of #transgender community) deserve. We are beyond awards. ♡] #tpoc #tqpoc #girlslikeus #trans100 #transwomen #twoc #transmasculine #boi #transmenofcolor #transpeopleofcolor #qpoc #qtpoc #translatinas #blacktranseverything #brownqueersupremacy #brownboi #qapi #transasian #translatino #mixedrace #sickqueertimes] cc: @ninothefunnyman ♡
