M Barclay shared these beautiful words the other day, which really made me reflect…
For those of you who have been so supportive of me as I continue to live into my true self, as M and as genderqueer, thank you. It continues to mean the world to me.
On that note, I am so thrilled to share that this past Friday I was able to have "top surgery" to help me live into my self and my body better. This was, of course, a surgery I have thought about long before coming out as genderqueer. I know many folks are only used to connecting such surgeries with female to male transitions or vice versa, but that is not my journey. I will be taking hormones for a short period of time which will affect my voice, and then I will be done with the physical aspects of my gender transition as a non-binary person.
I'm sharing this otherwise personal news first and foremost because I am incredibly grateful and overjoyed. This surgery is nothing short of liberating for me. I already feel so much better and more myself.
