Change is the only constant and is something we all have to deal with. As a trans person I am doing this podcast as a lead up to my forthcoming book “Like A Butterfly: Leaving the Cocoon”. I'm writing this book in hopes that my story will help guide trans folks as well as our family members, friends, lovers and anyone else who recognizes that our society has changed and that we too must change with it. If you are a Cis person (not trans), this book Will help you let go of rigid rules for performing gender and discover a more authentic expression of yourself and allow others to do the same.

Living in Glass Jars - Privilege
"Living in Glass Jars" is the title to one of the chapters in my forthcoming memoir "Like A Butterfly".  This chapter focuses on the days during my transition where I was sort of living in a glass jar of privilege.  A handsome man found me crawling towards my destiny and took me home, put me in a glass jar and allowed me to spin my cocoon and transition in a safe environment.  Because of this I experienced a lot of privileges that my trans brothers and sisters do not typically experience.  I learned a lot of hard lessons, but I learned them through one man over the course of several years instead of playing the game of Russian Roulette that is dating while trans. The Spread - Illinois Medicaid to cover gender reassignment surgery and a 22 black trans woman named Muhlaysia Booker is attacked "mob-style" in Dallas Texas. Support black trans author Dane Figueroa Edidi by buying her book, "FOR BLACK TRANS GIRLS WHO GOTTA CUSS A MOTHERFUCKER OUT WHEN SNATCHING AN EDGE AIN'T ENOUGH".
