at a wedding in Delhi

One of the most amazing experiences of my journey into womanhood occurred when I attended a wedding in Delhi. The bride knew me before I transitioned, but immediately embraced my identity as Emily when I announced it. We quickly became extremely good friends, and I therefore eagerly attended her wedding when the time came. I […]

weekly transwoman-friendly fashion roundup (#1 – introduction)

Today I initiate a new series, a weekly roundup of fashions I’ve become enamored with during the week. I particularly focus on the needs of transwomen in my survey, as transwomen generally stand taller than the average woman, generally fill more space, carry diminished hips, and sport broader shoulders. With each recommendation I’ll state why […]

transgender people love

Lost in the ongoing ecclesiastical debate about whether transgender identities hold validity in the eyes of God [1] are interactions between (cisgender) Christian thinkers and transgender individuals themselves, particularly those of faith. Many faith-leaders and Christian scholars intellectualize us into sub-humanity:  Their idea is that God made humans male and female strictly in God’s own […]

the real reason I live in an RV

So I want to remind current Thermo Fisher employees and leadership what they can take pride in: Exceptional Handling of my On-the-Job Gender Change I joined […]

“distorted and out of tune” – a troll (sort of) gets it

I received the following response from a troll regarding music [4] I released recently: The music is “distorted” and dissonant—and would sound “out of tune” to many who lack musical sophistication. That is intentional. A compositional choice. And the dissonance intentionally speaks to the experience of feeling “out of tune” as a transgender person. So […]

seatbelt

As a woman, I operate my driver’s side seatbelt differently than previously. In the past I quickly reached across my chest with my right hand and grabbed the device. But now my clothes constrict my movement slightly more, and I therefore find it easier to first reach up with my left hand to grasp the […]

lyrics: “Smelly Cunt”

I referred to this song in my recent post “a smelly cunt and a mission from God“, so provide the lyrics here. The piece comes from my debut album “City of God“. The post “this is transgender music” offers a detailed explanation of the lyrics. Recording City of God by Axis Evil Lyrics I’ve never […]
