“As I walk down this hard and happy road I realize that we, as a world, are breaking the shackles of silence and shadows.  There have been people yelling for decades that society is broken and now the world is beginning to listen.

I am in awe when these people fight the systems that have suppressed, oppressed, assaulted, and abused us.  

The most immediate radical act we can do is to remove society’s toxic tendrils from our soul: to love ourselves and to generously participate in acts of self love and self care.  

I am inspired when I see other femme folx who are living their own truth, who love themselves and their bodies so completely.  I am continually inspired by those who dare to bare their souls loudly and brightly when society demands compliance and whispers.

So now: here I am, reveling in myself and the body that is so much closer to what I’ve always dreamed and maybe, I can also live my truth, love myself, and be my own inspiration.“
