When I first started out my transition, I was lost. Any information I have found was not kept in a neat little location – it was scattered in a sea of Google searches and YouTube videos. While the information is out there, it is either inaccessible to all or hidden beneath ignorance and transphobia.
And sometimes, the information out there is too generic. While there are videos or articles out there that can explain the process of coming out or how to approach dating, you may leave feeling just as lost as ever. I remember feeling that way – the struggles of coming out, navigating the workplace, how I interacted with the healthcare system, etc.
That’s where this website comes in. No one should be feeling lost, not knowing where to start or even what the next steps are. While I already make YouTube videos, writing is more my strength. I have been meaning to do this for a very long time now but my own dysphoria, specifically with my chest because I didn’t have top surgery yet, was a constant roadblock so I couldn’t give 110% to others when I struggling myself. Now that I have been able to have top surgery, thanks to Point of Pride, I am able to give myself fully to helping others in the best way that I can. And I believe this is how.
My inspirations for this blog came from Dear Coquette and Tranifesto, hoping to mix the two concepts together in my own unique way. I’ve already been approached by fellow trans and nonbinary siblings on how to begin their journey and I thought I should share the knowledge with the rest of the world.
My name is Gabriel and I am here to help.
