I am a transgender male and this is my journey through the unknown. I am a writer, a photographer, and a wanderer. I gravitate towards understanding all things hidden in society with a passion for living a transformative life. This blog is about that self-discovery and here I share photography and journaling that captures vulnerable moments of authentic living.
Authenticity could not exist without vulnerability.
Do you have dreams that you think are impossible? Do you long to take a risk but are too afraid? Does the unknown scare you? If so, here you will find inspiration to navigate uncharted waters to become unapologetically you. In the 5 years I struggled with my gender identity, I feared the road ahead was impossible. I found courage to start hormone replacement therapy on December 17, 2017, underwent “top surgery” on December 4, 2018, completed a legal name and gender marker change and “came out” to every person I know. This one life is all we get. For 5 years I worried, what if I take this chance and regret it? So, I ask you, what if you don’t take a chance and you look back one day and regret it?
