One of the biggest challenges facing a person of Trans experience is coming out to one’s family. For a person of Mexican heritage, it’s even harder due to the deeply rooted, toxic transphobia based on the religious and cultural traditions brought in by the European conquerors...

I am Timmie, that much I know, I found her sitting in a deep deep hole, when I saw her for the first time I looked at her and said, “I’m so sorry, if I am seen helping you out I will get in trouble and people will say bad things about me”. You see, I am already in...
The journey continues My story continues in September 2020 when I applied for a legal name change. I chose the name Jue Meili (pronounced Gee May Lee) meaning pearl beautiful. It takes an untold number of years for a real pearl to grow inside an oyster shell to become a most bea...
It occurred to me this week, that so few people can really understand my reasons for choosing to live the way I do! Even more so, on the subject of surgery (SRS). The latter being quite a dramatic and extreme choice that encouraged some to tell me that, it will not change who I a...
