Hey folks! I missed #nationalcomingoutday while I was on holiday with my family in Alabama this past week. If you don’t mind, I’d like to talk gender/identity/expression and my experience coming out as a trans guy. First and foremost, I’d like to mention that coming out isn’t for everyone. It may not be safe for you to come out right now. It may not seem like the right time for you to come out. It may even be an unnecessary step to you. That’s okay! You are okay. You will be okay. You are valid wherever you are in your personal gender journey right now. I’ll tell y’all something... I didn’t always know I was trans! Knowing what I know now, I would say I was a very non binary acting child. It wasn’t until later in my life that I would feel the pressure to be female and female presenting (as I was designated female at birth). I was a very feminine presenting girl for most of my life. I played the part very well. It wasn’t until I came out as a gay girl that I would tap into those hidden masculine aspects of myself. Several times throughout my life I remember not quite feeling whole. I did not have the proper vocabulary to voice what that meant. I’ve only been out as trans for a few years now. Most of the time identifying as non binary. It wasn’t until recently that a conversation with my partner made all the missing pieces come together. She’s right in that I’m my own kind of man. I will always be my own kind of man. I will not change to fit a binary. I am gentle and soft and radical. I am trans and just beginning. I am efflorescence. Blooming and becoming. I am me. For the first time in years...I’m me to the core. #lgbt #queer #trans #transgender #transgenderpride #transboy #transguy #guyslikeus #ftm #ftmtransgender #femaletomale #comingout

#nationalcomingoutday was last week but I wanted to signify that this is not only coming out to your sexuality/gender but also coming foward abt sexual abuse & assault. Don’t be afraid to speak up and come thru for the Pipeline Project next week @ NSCC 10/24-10/25 #MeToo

Even though I’m a week late, I feel like every day should be coming out day! I’ve been fighting this for the longest and I couldn’t be happier to finally be able to accept who I am... I’m a proud gay man!! I just want everyone to know that I have not changed; who I decide to be with does not change the person you know. I still love everyone regardless of what they think. If anyone doesn’t agree with my lifestyle, please discuss it with me! Leave my family out of it! Just know it will not change me. Even though it hurts knowing how my family will react to the news, it would’ve hurt more living a lie. I know they’ll learn to accept it and I love them no matter how long it takes. Love always win! 🏳️‍🌈🌈🏳️‍🌈🌈 • • • #pride #proudgayman #itswhoiam #loveislove #equality #instagay #nationalcomingoutday #meandmyboyfriend #tbt #gaymale #neverbeenhappier #imstillme #jjmalibu

Quiero confesarte que me enamoré de ti. Que te he elegido para complicarme la vida contigo. Que no eres el amor de mi vida, porque no hemos tenido una vida juntos, pero eres el amor de mi existencia, de mi momento. Y deseo que algún día te conviertas en el amor de mi vida.

In this week's episode of The Self Podcast, @johodaniels and I take the time to "unpack" some of the recent events in our country. ✨ From the tragedy in Las Vegas to it being National Coming Out Day, we felt like it was only right to give ourselves the space to process things. Link is in the BIO. You can also find the episode on iTunes and Google Play! . . . . .

@amb@ambertheicon 👈🏽 Me not agreeing and not supporting are 2 completely different things. I do not agree with homosexuality but I support any form of love ❤️ in the world. Gay Lesbian Transgender whatever you do is what you choose make sure he or she is a thug and intelligent too. I love you all (Except meat eaters) 🌈 I hope this helps someone... read her story... Get your skype on with her to heal is to love ❤️ #Repost with @ambertheicon #FB Happy #NationalComingOutDay I'm a queer (pansexual to be precise), polyamorous, gender fluid kinkster. ❤️ I was in the closet for ten years and came out to my family as lesbian 6 years ago. I later realized that I am pansexual (although I prefer the term "queer"). ❤️ I came out to myself as polyamorous two years ago, but, I've always had crushes on more than one person at once...and felt guilty for it. When I discovered polyamory, I realized this is natural! I'm still unlearning toxic monogamy culture. ❤️ I am gender fluid, as well. Most days I identify as a cis-woman. Other days I identify as "other", not quite male, but, not female either. My preferred gender pronouns are "she" & "they", btw! ❤️ I have been practicing kink for 10 years, but, I finally came out to myself as a kinkster 2 years ago. This was just as hard to accept as being queer until I decided that there's nothing wrong with getting or giving spankings as long as there's consent!!! 💕 I have come SO FAR to say this to all of you!! I hope this inspires you to live authentically, whatever that looks like for you. ❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️ #poly #queer #pride #rainbow #lgbt #lgbtq #qpoc #qwoc #qtpoc #comingout #kink #polyamory #genderfluid
