Today I will be initiating a state and federal background check on myself. I know what’s in my past, but apparently it’s a necessary step towards legally changing my name and gender.
I know that in today’s political climate in this country being trans is not super safe but you know what else isn’t safe? The way I felt about myself when I was pretending to be a man.
I have quite a few steps ahead of me legally speaking, but I’m super excited to get started.
