thegreatestlover-neverknown asked: i need some help and advice on coming out to my family. mainly my mom.
i'm still pre op and i havent even started t yet.
I would actually suggest that you ask http://transpride.tumblr.com/
They have a wonderful group of people who can answer your questions and give you advice rather than here where you only have one person. I have came out to my parents but every situation is different and I think describing your situation to them you’ll get a better answer.
Anonymous asked: Hey transgender, it's genderqueer. I'm glad you're updating this blog again; the binder picture, in particular, was rad. Here's to queer tumbling!
I’m glad I am too, haha! Went into a bit of a lull there. Your blog is awesome as well, keep up the great work!
Feel free to use the submit and ask features.
I’m always happy to see submissions from the followers as well as questions or stories.
Posting bright and early this morning from the airport. I discovered an awesome artist and thought I’d share! His name is J. Aiden Simon, he’s a senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art. This past summer, he had an incredible series up at the DC Center called “Member.” According to an interview with Metro Weekly, Simon’s series is based on the idea that:
“Being a man doesn’t mean you have to have a penis, or a penis of a certain size. There are a lot of [existing] photographs of trans people and they are all saying the same thing: Trans people are human. I feel like we should be so much further than we are with art and photography of trans people. I want people to be able to have a space to start a dialogue about being a man, having a body, identifying your body as being a man’s body, and the whole issue of equating having a penis with being a man and how pervasive that is in our culture — and how damaging it is for everybody.”
