Goodbye 2012, and what a year it was.
The things I accomplished in 2012 go way beyond anything I ever intended or imagined. (The only reason 2011 has a leg up is because I had top surgery at the beginning of that year, and that is still the biggest milestone in my life.) Let’s do a quick recap.
- Started, then stopped, then started, then stopped and, finally, started and continued Testosterone HRT.
- Celebrated my one-year post-op from top surgery
- Attended a total of 3 separate Transgender Conferences (traveling to Philadelphia, Berkeley, and Seattle) in which I gave a presentation on Non-Binary Transition.
- Switched jobs, switched names, switched pronouns.
- Legally changed my name and gender (at least in the US)
- Continued to promote my excellent fashion sense
- Worked on my relationship with my dad
- Read a lot of LGBTQ Books (my list has since doubled)
- Was chosen to be a model for St Harridan, a company setting out to revolutionize suits, but it’s about more than just clothes.
- Talked about asexuality
- Answered over 80 Ask Away emails and over 100 Tumblr asks.
- And despite agonizing, second-guessing, and doubting all of my decisions, I enjoyed every minute of it!
You can check out all the posts written in 2012 and, if you feel like catching up, in 2011 too. Currently I am working on a whole slew of bigger and better things to come, including more conference travel, more engaged outreach and education on non-binary identities, and (of course) more blogging about my adventures in gender, so stay posted.
Thanks to everyone who reads, silently or otherwise; thanks to everyone who comments or emails, and lets me know they are touched by what I write; thanks to all of you, who keep me going.
