The letters LGBTQ are just another way of saying that Love is Love.

    The Villain

    The Villain

    We laid in his bed, side by side, finally bare to what we were. Words fell into limbo, though I still engaged in playful, childish wordplay during the climax to reiterate our foundation. He observed my jovial facade; allowing it; contesting it through those beautiful blue eyes; those blues that said infinitely more than what he usually uttered through his lips. I looked at this passageway in my exploration, remembering their wetness from only minutes before. As I continued, nearing the culminating moments of the act, I revisited them once again. Wet, slightly chapped and nevertheless soft like the rest of his face. I looked at his exposed arm, the two moles on it mirroring mine, also on my left arm, also in the same spot. Only seconds away from finishing, I wondered if he also noticed our one resembling trait.

    Experiments are good

    Experiments are good

    This year hasn't suck as bad, my favorite movie of the year is Birds Of Prey, and it confirms more than anything that Harley Quinn is my Spirit Animal. It's inspiring me to go out more in Woman's apparel, whether Skirt, dresses, or Boots. I've been so wrapped up in caring about what other people thought, and the movie showed me someone who walked away from a bad situation to make it on her own. So stemming from that, Experiment On Me from Halsey as been my song for 2020. I say that because the Woman that's trapped inside by 300-pound body has been screaming somewhere along those lines and while I've gotten some cute outfits, I did go out in my beautiful Skirt. So I've been experimenting with walking in public with Woman's clothes on and not giving two fucks, it's an experiment that I want to pass.

    Pan

    I am by birth a being of internal stress. My veins and muscles only mere things for physical appearance. In time, I have become a man of many secrets and feelings. The more of each make for one to more scared and miserable. The tale I share is one of many secrets, this is a secret that has created more secrets and bought many sorrows to follow. Yes, I am a man of many secrets, among those being my love for another man.

    My Not So Secret Life

    My Not So Secret Life

    RuPaul famously says, “we’re all born naked and the rest is Drag.” While I love his show and I completely agree, I never experienced the extravaganza of an actual drag show. All of that would change when I got a chance to take part in a drag show.

    The Secret That Nearly Killed Me

    The Secret That Nearly Killed Me

    So I have been holding on to this secret for most of my life due to fear of rejection from friends and family as well as people in my community. I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to be open about it and finally be free of the shackles which keep me from fully being myself. After talking to a friend who kinda already knew and when asked whether or not I should finally come out he said this:

    DISCLOSURE, J.K. Rowling, & Why the Narrative of Violent Trans Women in Pop-Culture Has to Change

    For the past few days, #TransWomenAreWomen has been trending on Twitter. This is after Stephen King tweeted just that which got J.K. Rowling to unfollow him and delete a tweet where she thanked and praised him (after he retweeted an excerpt from a thread of hers).

    A little boy who wanted to be a girl.

    A little boy who wanted to be a girl.

    I’ve always been alone. We all are, aren’t we? But I’ve been especially alone, for so many years. I’ve mastered isolation to a degree that could be quite overwhelming to some. Now, solitude has its benefits, as well as disadvantages. I’ve been able to observe. Observe the world go by, observe people interact with each other whilst safely being behind the facades of their egos. I have come to appreciate the machinations of human society. How we have built this intricate, complicated structure that we must adhere to. Whether it’s behaving a certain way, saying certain things, or even not doing certain things. Because well, society wouldn’t approve. So now let’s take the case of a transgender boy who grew up in Kenya, in a society where homosexuality or gender dysphoria isn't really considered to be valid human experiences. This boy was me. Is me. I’ve always wanted to be a girl, always. I played with my mother’s makeup, draped her dresses around my then 10- year-old body. I loved the grace and elegance that she had. I loved slipping into her high heels a few sizes bigger than my own feet. I felt feminine, divine. I loved the smell of perfumes, lipsticks, her dressing room. I loved playing with Barbie dolls. We had a family friend who we visited occasionally. They had a daughter who had a humongous Barbie collection. This was rare, as we were in a small town in Kenya where we didn’t have access to western toys. So whatever we saw on TV was just that; TV. When friends traveled abroad and brought back toys, it was a spectacularly awesome experience. So when we went to her house I immediately ran up to her room and we played with her Barbies. When it was time to leave to go back home, my mother would come up to call me. I would hide the Barbie behind my back. But she knew, she could see the big blonde hair peeking behind me. She knew I was holding a Barbie. She smiled, she always allowed me to play with them. My mother loves me a lot but unfortunately, she didn’t really know what was going on with me. No one did. No one knew just how confused and alone I felt. It was like being in a glass box, watching everyone be themselves whilst I wasn’t allowed to. I had to be a boy, I had to wear boy clothes, play with dirt and toy-cars, just like a little boy would. This wasn’t an issue whilst I was young because I was quite creative. I’d make up little worlds in which my characters would live. They’d be loving, peaceful, kind. Just as my parents had taught me.

    The Love of My Life

    The Love of My Life

    For my first post, I am writing about the love of my life. We just celebrated our one year anniversary on 6/29/2020 and it was the best day we’d had in months. Due to the virus we were not able to do the fun things we were accustomed to like going to the movies, traveling to see our friends or family, or just going out to dinner. Being able to just spend time with him to build our relationship stronger and take it to the next level is amazing. He understands me. He doesn’t judge me. He accepts me for me and that is one of many qualities I love so much about him. He is a mans man and he always says I am the woman in the relationship because I cry at sappy movies and I am a very emotional person. Greg is the man I am going to spend my life making happy. So, for anyone reading this, don’t ever take your partner for granted. Always, always communicate and love unconditionally. Never judge one another, instead compliment. Never sweat the small stuff, instead laugh it off. Never lie, instead tell the truth. I will hate you less if you tell me the truth so I can deal with it in the present. Love is the key to a long lasting healthy relationship. I am a Pisces and my sign is very emotional and always wear my heart of my sleeve. Being vulnerable is the one way I have found is a good way to find love. Although, to many times I thought I found love, it turned out it was just a game to some. Using me for what I could offer them mostly, which was stability and me paying for pretty much everything. With Greg, he pays for pretty much everything while I take care of my past finances and me putting myself through school to better my life and what will be our future. He tells me all the time, “whatever you want babe”. It is nice to know there is someone who is willing to put my needs before there’s in most situations. He knows my past history and he doesn’t judge, he only tells me that I am a great guy and apologizes constantly when I get depressed or tell him what’s wrong. He comforts me and tells me he loves me and that will never change. I cannot believe that I have finally found the guy who was created, just for me. I know that sounds corny, but at the end of the day, he is there for me, and I for him. Every night we fall asleep together, and the mornings we wake together are gifts. He doesn’t have to, but he does. His parents are still in the dark about us, mostly because I am a man, and I do have a son. Yes, I was married to a woman. I was one of those men who was a people pleaser, who gave my all to make things better in my life. Being straight was the easy way to live life. My family was very religious, and I thought me coming out would destroy the relationship I held with them. After I came out, they still loved me. My sister was my biggest fan. She stood up for me in ways I never dreamed possible. My life has become so much more these last three years. Greg, was only supposed to be a one time deal, but something magical happened. He is a kind, caring, compassionate man and I could and will not ask for anything more than for him to be who he is. I will leave this post with this, no matter how much you’ve been through with your past relationships, or the kinds of people you’ve been with, there will always be one person out there who sees you for you and will accept you for you. That is the kind of person you want in your life. That is the kind of person you want to be with. That is the kind of person you want to fall in love with.

    Maybe, if I roll this letter up, seal it tightly in a bottle and set it out to sea, my words will find your sun kissed, bare form.
