Right now, until I reach that magic 5 year cancer survival line, I would say, and my counselor would agree, that I am transgender not in transition. But if you really look at one of the meanings of transition, I have been this way for most of my life, learning more all the time about who and how I was, and coping with the realization that I wasn’t just CD, or gay, or just weird, but much, much more.
It all became much easier to me once I finally accepted the truth of who I am and began to turn my life in the direction I needed to be happy within as well as with myself, fully transitioned or not.
Would that be considered more gender fluid, gender queer or what? It doesn’t matter anymore to me, I am comfortable, and like ‘The Boss” Springsteen says, “It’s a sad man my friend, who’s livin’ in his own skin, and can’t stand the company. These ARE better days.”
