Love as Capitalism

Author’s Note: I’m probably going to say some things in this blog that confuse, anger, or trigger you. I’m playing with big concepts, and in order to understand what I’m talking about, you’re going to have to go on the ride with me. I promise it will all make sense in the end. I believeContinue reading “Love as Capitalism”

Why I Deleted My Instagram Account

I started my Instagram account in January 2015. I started it for several reasons, but the main reason was because I’d moved to Los Angeles that same month to pursue a living as an actor. I’d been told through the actor-grapevine (no one really knows where it begins, but if you’re an actor in LA,Continue reading “Why I Deleted My Instagram Account”

My First Time Presenting Publicly as Female

The first time I went out in public in “women’s clothing” was in 2015, in Burbank, California.

First off, wow. That didn’t take long. I think we’re only three weeks out from when I said I hoped this blog would help me find the courage to come out, and I’ve already changed my name publicly on all social media, and I made a big ol’ post about my new name & identity.Continue reading “Why I Decided to Come Out as Trans During a Pandemic”

Defining “Womanhood”

Being a writer, I’m naturally someone who interrogates our collective definitions & understandings of words. As a writer who is also a woman in transition, a word that’s been on my mind a lot lately is “womanhood.” What does it mean to be a woman, and why is that such a nebulous concept that soContinue reading “Defining “Womanhood””
