Celebrating 6 years on testosterone

A couple days ago, I celebrated six years since the beginning of my physical transition. A lot of things have changed since 2016. Not only in terms of how my body has ever increasingly felt more like my own, but also in how the world is treating trans people.

Cis society has long looked down on us but just a few years ago they rarely spoke about us. They’d laugh at us in sitcom jokes and the Jerry Springer Show but otherwise we were rarely mentioned. Now we have become more visible and unfortunately that has also lead to increased hatred and more laws being passed to make our lives difficult. Just recently, the state of Florida passed laws to abuse trans teens by forcing them to detransition. And the governor responsible for this law as well as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law was just democratically reelected by people who agree with his hate.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I don’t believe trans people will ever be fully accepted in cis society. But I am willing to fight tooth and nails for our rights. I consider it a duty as a trans person who has survived when others didn’t. I am currently still working on the book inspired by my own experience with transitioning in Sweden and the writing is going great. I’m hoping to get it done by the beginning of next year.

Apart from fighting the good fight, I think it’s important to celebrate the victories. I really don’t want to give the impression that being trans is just struggle all the time. There has been progress made in different countries around the world. The midterm American elections which just happened led to important victories for the Democrats and therefore for trans people. Things can still get better!

As for me, transitioning was the single best thing I ever did for my own well-being and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.

Blew out the candle and made a wish for my seventh year on T
