I Celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility


International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is an annual event occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide, as well as a celebration of their contributions to society. (Wikipedia)

This seem as good of a place as any to address an anonymous comment I received a few day ago on my "As A Boy" post. The writer is a high school and elementary school classmate.  

Only God can save you Xxxxxxx William's you must return to (my little town in Virginia) and surrender your life to Jesus #Trump2024. 

First, no surprise on the Trump thing. Well Joe, I do not see that any salvation is necessary. My salvation is being free of a religion that imposes fundamentalist / controlling views on others. Was not Jesus teaching mainly about love? I am not feeling the love here - only a contemptuous demand.  I am proud to be visible, out, and spreading understanding and love. 

Today is about being proud, visible and happy.  It is a time to celebrate being transgender and non-binary. It is a time for people around the globe to acknowledge the courage it takes to live openly and authentically. 

Today is our day.




  1. Why must one come to his town in Virginia to be saved?

    If he truly wanted to share the gospel why was it necessary to hashtag trump?

    This is about power and control

    Fundamentalists whether Christian, Muslim or Buddhist always use scripture to subjugate women, outlaw alcohol, control diet, and impose sexual restrictions. It's about power and control

  2. Everyone in this family thinks they r so damn smart but they are not. It's one of ur cousins not someone u went to school with. I tried to connect with u but u started ignoring me. Guess u think ur 2 good for me like the rest of this family all they r the shit u think ur gma berta was with all that fake shit? She was real. And she was not some savior to black people integrating churches like u seem to embellish ur stories but I know some old school Halifax ppl n they think u full of shit with some of ur rants. I have issues for real and needed a family member to lean on but u ignored me every time I reached out. So I hope my stupid comment hurt ur feelings cause u hurt mine cause I wanted to be ur friend.

  3. Why dont u get off ur high horse and admit ur a country bumpkin like the rest of us and this whole "I'm so classy look at my name brand clothes" shit is all an act to seem betta than the rest u kno ur not why dont u be humble like ur gma was like I am but no ur on a high horse now write a post about me and how god awful I am when u kno u put on a lot of acts to seem beta than every1 else we are some stupid ass people who Re no better than the rest but u could neva admit that could u
