This is a collection of short essays and journal entries that I've written since coming out as trans. In them you can see how my identity and understanding of myself has developed and in some cases shifted over time. I have chosen to include some pieces that don't feel like an accurate representation of my feelings or experiences now, because they were true at the time they were written and they are important parts of my history.
