Let’s make a trans zine! 

Now accepting submissions for
*TransMission(s)*, a collaborative zine by and for the transgender community. Our first issue will be under the theme of “Reclaiming our Narrative.” Our stories have been told by others for so long and consistently manipulated and warped to fit agendas and spread misinformation. When we speak with our own voice we back against these decades of gaslighting and lift each other up.

We’re looking for:
-essays
-short fiction
-poetry
-art
-comics
-photography

Any proceeds of sales will go to paying printing costs first, contributors second, and editors last.

Being generally positive and thankful for being trans without being Pollyanaish and erasing the struggle so many of us face.

That’s the space I try to occupy and maintain.

Trans Voice 

This is an excellent primer on voice feminization. It has a useful glossary and covers some key exercises.

I am often more enamored with the idea of a thing than the material reality of it.

Living as a woman is probably the most notable exception to this. The reality has actually surpassed my meager expectations.

Every day I am like “goddamn, I am so glad I did this,” as I find small details to enjoy.

But honestly, the biggest thing is just looking in the mirror, and seeing myself. I mean seeing the *actual* person I am, and not the person everyone else wanted to be.

Nothing could be better.

One of the best parts about putting “queer” in your bio is that people know what they are signing up for when they follow you.

I accidentally threw shade at wife and so she roasted me back and now I have a new identity crisis.
Don't fuck with trans women.

I have permanently banned the president of the united states from posting on radical.town.

we grow tougher than we feared we’d ever be forced to
and more tender than we had ever thought possible

So it turns out that sex kinda sorta really matters, in sexual relationships.

Trans stuff, voice dysphoria, Boosts are cool 

I go back and forth on this. Why should I change my voice? Society is the one that sucks!

But it also really sucks when I'm treated like a woman until I open my mouth.

I feel like if I were truly OK with my voice the I wouldn't be thinking about this stuff which means that I'm really not OK with my voice dysphoria. I do know that I heard a voice message I left for my wife and I was legit surprised that my voice sounded femme (at least more femme than I think it is) and got a little kick of euphoria from it. And like just that should be enough to point me towards yeah I legit do have voice dysphoria.

But admitting that also means having to deal with it and I don't really want to deal with another thing right at the moment.

If anyone has done vocal training to as a part of their transition, could we talk? I'm real curious about the process and what to expect as far as results / time and work involved.

Do I know anyone else who plays poker, beyond the “I have played with my friends” level—you know who you are.

Bikini Espresso stands...I just don’t understand men.

If the mass population results around safety and efficacy of these vaccines turn out to be as good as the stage III clinical trials, what has happened is truly an outstanding accomplishment.

To bring a vaccine to market at this rate is seriously remarkable.

Sometimes I look in the mirror...and I can’t believe I ever used to look different.

I am playing poker again—this was a huge part of my life during the “poker boom” of the mid-00’s —and I am playing the best i ever have in my life. That’s not an exaggeration, or me being unaware of my game flaws. I am simply fully understanding concepts that I never really had the best grasp on, and I am executing them well.

It feels really good to be able to access these things again.

Also, post-transition, I have a much better control on my competitiveness which helps immensely. The game is filled with so many rollercoasters on its own, adding that only makes things more intense and thus more difficult to handle.
