I wrote yesterday about my experience with top surgery earlier this year, in part of what seems to have become an annual tradition of writing about my top front quadrant. I feel tentatively good about it! On the one hand, I’m wary of oversharing about big-ticket issues like “THE SURGERIES” early in transition in ways I may end up regretting later on; on the other hand, being able to honestly and publicly speak about the body and desire is something I’ve come relatively late to, and I’m very grateful for the chance to get to do so. I would have wanted to read something like it very much just a few years ago.
Thank you, especially for this: "My hope for all people, of every age, is that they may find elements of joy in their embodiment, not unrelenting happiness or forced positivity...."
Really powerful - and you are/were WAY too good for Gawker :)
