The mirror reflects the image that the surrounding light illuminates. While it reflects literally what’s right in front of it, the interpretation of what we see depends on the observer. At some point in my childhood the image staring back at me in the mirror bec...
A year ago yesterday, August 13, I filed my court orders for my name and gender change; my first major step towards social transition. I had been on hormones for almost three months. Although during the first two months, I didn’t think I would fully transition. I only wanted to...
I’m coming up on a year since I came out and went full time as Stephanie. What a year it has been. I’ve never been happier and freer in my skin than I have been in the last year. If only I known prior to transition how it would affect me, I’d have done this years ...

I would like to share my life with all the beautiful women here. Accept who you are. I waited too long, and yet it was the perfect time. I was known by my mother, and every woman that I was ever with. Each knew my true self, but I was too afraid to agree and admit that I was a wo...
