Sometimes it is important to think about the fact that we live on the same planet as Janet Mock, and that is beautiful.

Seemed like we should check in on Ashley? Though I can’t say this is a notable or revealing update, it tracks!

Well, it would be silly not see how Cara is doing… again, this all makes sense to me!

if there is a moment where I feel my truth & narrative are being warped & sabotaged, external validation becomes important. but thats the trap because external validation is not a sustainable, consistent or sincere resource for grounding, or healing, or safety or protection or support & can negatively impact your self esteem, & will power by creating a dependent dynamic.. just to feel good about being liked in a moment where you feel targeted by misplaced hatred. but the truth remains true irregardless of what may be the intention of others who desire to manipulate it for the narrative they prefer to tell themselves & others. I am a black trans femme. There will always be people who hate to see us loved, and there are people who will wait for any excuse to hate somebody and to be a black trans femme, is to live everyday in a fight to preserve & protect my truth, identity, narrative & character. But there are times this pressure multiplies & feels compounded. There are also times where the fight must adapt, though idk what that looks like all the time. I am inspired by and in awe of those who survive the most difficult, conniving, & almost unforgivable social circumstances, without this validation.

my love for myself is endless, unshakable, for I am still here. crying, smiling, laughing and fighting. for you, and for me, mostly for you if I’m being honest. still learning how to fight for me. to value myself. while my self love runs as deep as ocean currents it seems to ebb and flow like waves on the shore. sometimes I can feel it… other times it feels so far away, a distance memory from another day, (perhaps another life). valuing this life, this moment, this body/mind/spirit sometimes feels an impossible feat. with a constant influx of outside forces corroding the walls of my fortress, my self esteem. with social media and the constant comparison of the self, my phone in hand I invite the voices in. the ones that tell me I’m not good enough and never will be. even in my quietest hours, lying in bed next someone who (though I often still cannot believe) loves me, for me… I feel it. that weight, the heaviness. my eyes sting and grow glossy and wet with no tangible reason in sight. I have more tools now, I’ve learned a bit of patience along the way, I am kinder to this woman, this little girl, this child, the memories and the traumas and the innocence all embodied in this body. my body. what a marvel it is to live. to be living. I find gratitude for every breath. I wish you peace, though in the moments where peace is simply not possible, I wish you solace in the knowing that you are not alone. that your life is of the utmost importance and that you, yes you, are love(d). I love you. 🌻 #worldmentalhealthday

Sept 15th 2014. The world premier of Transparent. In that moment I came out to the world as trans. I remember being scared after this event on my way back to NYC. I knew I had to go back to work in the strip clubs and I had no idea if the dudes in the clubs had Amazon prime and would watch me play an outwardly trans character for the first time. Prior to this I had starred in one indie film, had a Law and Order under my belt, and had been studying acting at various studios for about 6 yrs. My agent knew I was trans and that was it. I was shook. As a precaution I moved away from Harlem where I had lived for many years down the street from @jackmizrahi and other members of my house family. A move I’d initially made for safety so I could be in walking distance from them. But I’d had relations with the trade, and the local straight nightlife scene on Lenox Ave knew me too well to risk staying there. Islan Nettles (a trans woman) had just been catcalled and then beaten to death upon discovering she was trans by the local trade that August. She died one block from my apartment. So back to Bed Stuy I went. My spidey sense was going off all around me. Coming out as trans was simultaneously liberating and terrifying. I hadn’t felt this kind of anxiety walking down the street since before I had become passable. It all came flooding back, a tidal wave of trauma. Every night I went into work I risked my life. Thankfully most of the men who were patrons where I danced were not watching Transparent lol. I talked my way out of a couple sticky situations and I stripped up to season 2 until I landed a series reg on an NBC pilot that helped me quit the club for good. I don’t regret the leap of faith but sometimes I think I just got lucky. Coming out has completely changed my life. I still look over my shoulder every time I leave the house, I don’t think that will ever leave me until the world changes. But I have no regrets. I am happier out than in. #nationalcomingoutday

  1. Ooof. I don’t know how you do it Christina but this week you really hit me in the heart.

    First Hayley Kioko’s beautiful smile, then Janet Mock’s beautiful everything. And Stacey London and her partner. And I’m still not over what Tracey Lysette wrote for National Coming Out Day.

    Plus I want Janet Mock’s chunky shoes.

  2. vapid fluff tip: madison bailey (star of netflix teen drama outer banks) and her college bball playing gf are hot, adorable, gas each other up at every possible second on instagram
