We’re gonna start from the basics, and move on from there. Asexuality is defined as the lack of sexual ATTRACTION to other people. Unlike celibacy, which is a choice, or lack of a libido, which is a physical function, Asexuality is a sexual identity, the same way that homosexuality is. I’m my next post, I’ll be talking about the difference between sexual attraction and romantic attraction, and debunking the misconception that “all asexual people can’t be in relationships.”

Today was my last appointment with the therapist that has been such a solid person in my life since October 2018.
During our session we discussed the goals I hope to work on with my new therapist and general goals for the upcoming year. She mentioned multiple times how different I am from when I first sat down in her office.

I’ll miss Bonnie, the fact that she never remembers her computer password, and her addiction to chapstick. Despite that, I am very confident about working with someone new!
Shots out to The Bon-ster for hanging through all the tangents and abundant cursing 🍻

I took this photo meaning to post it and be like “Hey! Remember to take your meds!” But then I left the house, totally forgetting to take my own meds so here we are ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wasn’t planning on making a post about this because I had almost forgotten it had even happened. Facebook memories reminded me.
Last fall was a shit storm. I had posted, in detail, about said storm and subsequent hospitalization on my main account, but not this one. The long narrative I wrote is worthy (at least I think since this profile is now public) of a second post (along with these photos lol). Rereading it all reminded me of how grateful I am of all the changes that can happen in 12 months.

Due to the length (read: instagram’s caption limit), I’ll have to break up the monologue into sections in the comments. Which is very annoying but whatever. At least y’all will have the option not to read it if you don’t want (keep in mind it was written a year ago). I’ll sum it up here, and if you want to continue reading, head to the comment section.
tl;dr
Vulnerability is hard, but it’s worth it when you want to get better.
Group therapy is hard, but it’s worth it when you want to get better.
Being open is hard, but it’s worth it when you want to get better.
Medication management is hard, but worth it when you want to get better.
Mental illness is hard, but when you take the time to get better, it’s worth it.

after more than two years of being together, we finally had our parents meet and it was smooth! it’s that time of year to be grateful and family (related and chosen) is at the top of the list. what are you grateful for?

« Elle m’a dit qu’elle n’avait jamais été aussi heureuse d’avoir un fils […] et qu’elle était prête à m’accueillir comme j’étais. »
Mon première coming-out c’est mal passé. A 14 ans, j’ai dit à mes parents que j’étais homo. Ils ont très mal réagi. J’ai été catégorique et leur ai dit : « si vous êtes homophobe vous me perdez. ». Sur le coup, Ils m’ont viré de la maison. Après, ils sont revenus sur leur décision. J’ai profité de la situation pour les conscientiser sur les thématiques queers ; ce qui blesse ce n’est pas d’être queer, mais le rejet et l’abandon auquel on est confronté au quotidien parce que les gens sont fermés d’esprit.
Mon deuxième coming-out a été plus positif. Le premier a sûrement préparé le terrain. Il y a plus d’un an, je me suis rendu compte que j’étais un homme trans*. J’ai eu peur de le dire à mes parents et de revivre des conflits et une rupture. J’ai choisi de leur écrire une lettre. C’est ma sœur, avec qui je suis très complice, qui leur a donné. Le soir même, j’étais chez moi, avec mes amis proches. J’ai reçu un WhatsApp de ma mère. Elle m’a dit qu’elle n’avait jamais été aussi heureuse d’avoir un fils, qu’elle m’acceptait complètement et qu’elle était prête à m’accueillir comme j’étais. J’ai eu de la chance, ce n’est pas le cas de la majorité des personnes trans* et c’est aussi pour ça que je partage mon expérience. L’émotion était telle que mes amis, ma copine et moi avons fondu en larmes de soulagement. Le lendemain, ma mère est venue à Genève. On a mangé ensemble, elle m’a posé des questions, mais vraiment avec bienveillance. Aujourd’hui, elle est très investie. Elle a lu des livres et regardé plein de documentaires sur la transidentité ; elle va aussi au groupe parent du Refuge à Genève. Avec mon père ça a été plus compliqué au début, mais maintenant, il m’appelle Léon et me genre correctement (au masculin). Ma dysphorie étant très intense, il était vital pour moi de pouvoir, au plus vite, transitionner médicalement. Grâce au soutien de mes parents, j’ai pu lancer les procédures rapidement et commencer la testostérone quelques mois après mon coming-out.

This post was inspired by @booksandlala who made me rethink my own reading habits and who continued an important discussion about OwnVoices and inclusive representation. So what is this all about?
📖
Grab your favourite queer books and stack them on top of each other.
Now take away all the books that are written by straight and/or white authors and see what’s left.
📖
When I saw Kayla’s post I knew had had to do this myself. It’s in no way meant to point fingers, it merely spreads awareness that the voices of queer POC go unheard more often than not. And that we still have a long way to go. What we can do however is talk about this imbalance, support Authors of Colour and check our own reading habits now and again. I myself am a big advocate for OwnVoices and diverse reads and still - the small stack of only six books (that you see when you swipe left) shows me that there is a lot of room for improvement. Four out of those are written by gay men and the other two are anthologies written by male, female, nonbinary and queer people. Not as inclusive as I’d hoped. This doesn’t mean that every book that I’ll read in future has to be written by a queer Author of Colour, but it says that I can make much more of an effort to read more diverse and inclusive books. We all have our preferences. Some like to read classics, I definitely like my m/m YA books, but that shouldn’t keep me from expanding my bookish horizon.
📖
If you plan to do this little challenge yourself, I would love it if you could tag me! I’d really love to see your book stacks and hear your thoughts on the matter.
