Here’s the Thing… I don’t come with an on/off switch. How convenient would that be? To be able to shut off my feelings and close down my brain when I need to be me. Right… which me are we discussing again? That is always going to be the issue. I was standing next to...

The need to transition for many of us can literally become a life or death affair. The effects on overall health, the constant stress, anxiety, and self-loathing caused by not accepting your true self can affect the physical, emotional, and mental health of trans men and women. I...
Earlier this year I received a phone call from a friend. She said that she was putting together a program for International Women’s Day 2022 called I’m Speaking! and asked if I would be willing to speak along with 3 other women. I said Yes very quickly because I knew that ...
Resolutions… It’s that special time of the year when we promise to be better (or less bad) than we were the year before. Kind of like Tim McGraw and his next 30 years. I thought it might be fun to look back at my life by decades and do a “He Said, She Said” compilatio...
