Because every self respecting #StarWars fan has a #LightSaber. :)

Saw #TheForceAwakens twice so far and have a third viewing coming up before long. Great movie. Feels like Star Wars again. So good to see the classic characters again and I loved the new characters! Not a perfect movie, but undoubtedly the best Star Wars movie since the original trilogy. Can't wait for the next two chapters!! ❤️

Talking with teachers & staff at Brighton High #School as part of a #transgender panel this past Friday. It was an honor to be a part of the panel and these folks asked some great questions. School life will be so much better for trans students in the years to come and I'm filled with #gratitude to help make it a reality and see it happen. It's long overdue, and I'm so glad it's becoming a reality.

I was invited to speak at #RIT's #Transgender Day of Remembrance. I almost made it through the talk without crying. Almost.

I started the talk with, "It's bullshit that #TDOR even exists..." We gathered to remember our fallen trans sisters - their courageous, beautiful lives taken away by cowardly murders.

My message was that we should remember how they lived, the beauty and love they brought into the lives of family and friends, and how courageous each of them were to live their lives authentically in a world plagued by judgement and fear. Let us celebrate and honor their memory by living our lives with courage, authenticity, honor and love.

I attempted to focus on the positive - that the world is changing, growing, evolving and that we all have so much to look forward to. I always focus on the positive in a situation. It was hard this time. Really hard. My heart was filled with sorrow, as was everyone's in the room. Perhaps the most positive thing is that we're all still alive and have each other to be with, be there for, be supportive of and work through things together.

It really is bullshit that TDOR needs to exist. And I look forward to the day when it is no longer needed. And I WILL see that day before my time on this planet is through.

Participating in the Penfield Public Library Human Book History Project on Saturday. My "book" was about how the challenges of growing up #transgender in a society that doesn't understand transgender has strengthened me, offered a deeper understanding of #humanity, and empowered me to share important lessons learned - lessons that are universal and may be helpful to anyone dealing with life's challenges.

I had the honor of joining the #Transgender Trio on their latest episode of the #Transition Transmission Transgender #Podcast. We discussed #CaitlynJenner's remark about trans women who look like a "man in a dress", trans model #CarmenCarrera getting married on reality TV, a 46 year old #trans woman living as a 6-year-old, and a woman claiming that #StarWars is racist. I also share some of my public speaking experiences, talk about personal history, family and explain the complicated relationship with my wife.
I was invited to join podcasters: Amber, Tibby and Ramona for Episode 71 of Transition Transmission. It was an honor and joy to join the Transgender Trio for my

Heading to #RIT to talk about #lgbtq social acceptance over time. So grateful to be invited to the discussion!

The weather outside is cloudy and drizzly but I'm filled with sunshine in my heart and can't wait to meet everyone, share and have a discussion. 😊❤️

Talking with students at #RIT Tuesday evening, as part of their #transgender day of recognition (leading up to the Transgender Day of Remembrance on Friday). So grateful to have been invited to speak at their event! Enjoyed talking and having fun with some brave volunteers and a little experimental "story telling" (not captured in photo). Awesome group of really smart folks! ❤️

I Am Love
Introduction
Updated: 2014-12-29

I'm a trans woman in transition.

I speak publicly about trans realities in an educational capacity as a proud member of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley (GAGV) Speaker's Bureau.  Sharing my life and talking trans realities is very important work and it's my honor and privilege to do so.  My real passion is promoting "leadership of self", helping others feel empowered, and lighting people up with love and truth (which are one in the same).

Through love all things are possible.  That's the truth.  Love opens doors.  Fear closes them.  It's so simple, it almost sounds too easy.  The trick is to get out of the mental trappings of that dreaded "voice in the head" (self-narrative thought process), let go, and live in the moment.  It's like a trip back to childhood when everything seemed so magical.  The magic never went away - it's just that as we grow, many of us (myself included) get clogged up with emotional baggage and self-imposed mental barriers.  The mental barriers are generally the result of believing in the lies of society, including many well-intentioned teachers, friends and family members.  The barriers are as real the "monster in the closet" as a child.  They *only* exist in the mind...  So yeah, I really enjoy helping other "debug" the system (their mind).  There's nothing more beautiful and more powerful than freeing people from these mental trappings and watching them light up with creative energies, full of life and love! :)

In time *this* will be my day job - working with people, sharing, educating, learning, empowering, enlightening, and encouraging others to pass on what they have learned, as I will continue to do myself.  When this time comes, so too shall my transition be on the *right* side of full-time ME!

Namaste <3
