A Different Meaning

For as long as I can remember, I knew I was different, I just didn’t have the words to describe what I was.

Earlier this year I finally pieced it together and came out as a Trans guy.
It was the hardest thing I have done in my life, but for the first time I felt at peace with myself, there was this feeling of completion. Even though my body didn’t match, my realization help me understand so many things about myself.

I’ve been on testosterone for almost three months and have enjoyed many changes already, but going to the bathroom has become increasingly difficult.¬†Whether it’s someone policing a bathroom I went into or stares and statements, it’s been a fight everyday for a simple right. I am not at a point yet where I look masculine enough for the men’s room, but I am not feminine enough for many women’s restrooms.

A few days ago I came across this amazing image, it takes on new meaning for me and I remember this when I head to the “SuperHero’s” restroom and have a higher level of confidence.
I just can’t say enough great things about this image, or what it has done to instill a positive meaning into my life.
Now I don’t have to feel so embarrassed and this new confidence has helped those around me as well.
This image makes a different in so many lives, for many different identities and backgrounds. Thank you so much.
