Telling the Story

Walking through a transformation is like reading a story. There is a beginning, middle, and end/new beginning. Annika Penelope writes for the Huffington Post and her recent article is telling  “10 Things I Wish I’d Known When I Started My Transition.”  She highlights the positive points and the surprising shifts of life that are unexpected.

She also leads with her caveat, “Two years and 4,860 pills later, I now realize how little I actually understood back then. There were so many aspects of transitioning and being treated like a woman in society that I was totally unprepared for. And today I’d like to share 10 lessons that I wish I had known in February 2011. (Note: This advice is based on my own personal experience as a queer, femme, white, upper-middle-class trans girl with “passing privilege,” so some of it might not be applicable to you.)”  Her own personal experience is worth noting.
