What about me? I’m 38 years old and after an adult life of on again off again transition and HRT, I’m making it work this time. Follow my blog as I navigate my way through the space called “gender variant” and the, as of yet, distant concept of transition.

    Congratulations on finally being you. It isn’t easy, as the skin horse in the Velveteen Rabbit observes, but it’s only with time and with the edges of our lives soiled and tattered that we can become real.

    “It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” (from The Velveteen Rabbit http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/williams/rabbit/rabbit.html) I daresay you are already familiar with it, but it bears rereading if you haven’t looked at it recently.

    How lovely, and sad, and overwhelmingly rich it is to reminded of what it means to be Real. May you shine with love, and may you find yourself the joy and the comfort of loving friends.
