I’m a writer and educator with many years experience both as a professional in the mental health field and as a writer, educator, and passionate and compassionate activist on transgender issues. Did I mention I myself am transsexual? I sometimes forget to do that. My transition and surgery were more than twenty years ago and I get so caught up in my life and work I sometimes forget to disclose. I’m an accidental activist. That is, I didn’t initially set out to change the world. I was sucked in by my need to help others like myself. Because I had a horribly hard time finding reliable information and professionals who knew more about transsexualism than I did, I wanted those who came after me to have more information, support, and acceptance. Then I did set out to change the world, and I like to think in a small way I and others like me did. Things are certainly better for us than they were a couple of decades ago. Of course, we have a long way yet to go. Transgendered and transsexual people are still being murdered worldwide at an alarming rate and we still face widespread discrimination and find ourselves unable to marry in many places. Okay, lend me an arm to lean on as I step off this soapbox.
