After attacks on Maxine Waters, April Ryan, black women clap back with #BlackWomenAtWork

It’s Trans Day of Visibility, hello~

I finally know who I am and what I want, at least in terms of my own identity. I’m eagerly awaiting my first appointment at the London GIC (in the summer, uuugh, so far away), applied for master’s with my correct gender and preferred name, everyone at work knows me as Phillip and uses he/him, I’d say 2017 is shaping up to be pretty good. I also started packing and BOY, did it do wonders to my self-confidence! Binding is one thing, but making sure my trousers look the way they’re supposed to – I had no idea I would take such joy from such a little thing.

Have a wonderful day everyone, and remember: you’re amazing just as you are, but that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to change!
