I was supposed to have had my top surgery do-over April 2nd. I was *this* close. Then #COVID hit. But we all lost things. People are loosing their parents, spouses, and friends, I could handle this loss. ⁣ ⁣ I handled it. Came to terms with looking like this. I moved on. We moved on. Like we are packing up our house ‘cause the movers roll up in 9 sleeps to take us to the house we have ALMOST bought (oh the stories I have to tell from behind the scenes these past two weeks), kind of moving on. ⁣ ⁣ And then ⁣ ⁣ My surgeon wrote with a last minute cancellation. I had 20 minutes to decide, and I had to turn down a top surgery revision for tomorrow. ⁣ ⁣ Basically the most excruciating decision ever. My chest is not what I wanted. Or expected. Turns out feeding 4 babies makes removing these things a bit more difficult. I so badly just want my chest to be fixed so I can move on with this part of my life. ⁣ ⁣ Having this surgery hang over me has been exhausting. For almost 5 years now it’s played in the background of my mind. 8 weeks of recovery is not something you can just take last minute when you have 5 kids and are an entrepreneur. ⁣ ⁣ But the movers come in 9 days to take us to our dream life. One we have worked so hard for. ⁣ ⁣ It just wasn’t possible to have both, and so here we are. Broken but beautiful. Incredibly sad but still here. ⁣ ⁣ I’m sure there’s some higher purpose or deep lesson in this but I’m not sure I’m ready to find it, or if I’ll ever be. ⁣ ⁣ Life is heartbreakingly confusing sometimes isn’t it? ⁣ ⁣ Here’s to loving and living it anyway, because it sure is beautiful too. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ . #topsurgery #transman #transisbeautiful #loss #coronavirus #topsurgeryrevision #nonipples #transandshirtless #transandinked

I attended a two day conference here in Florida geared towards how schools can better serve #lgbtq students. It’s one of the only if it’s kind in the nation thanks to @equalityfl . District leaders, support staff, and administrators come together to learn about best practices. Packed house. It was phenomenal. Overheard while in a session: “Childhood is supposed to be all about exploring, learning, and being creative. Why can’t gender be a part of that? Why is gender the only thing that we put such rigid rules around?”. And I will use that time and again. What a brilliant, thought-provoking statement. #lgbt #lgbtq🌈 #pride #protecttranskids #protecttransyouth #protecttranslives #transyouth #transisbeautiful #love #gender #advocacy #activism #equality #humanrights #mamabear #fightlikeamother #educate #educators #lgbtpride #supporttranskids #transisbeautiful #beyou

Three years ago, she stood in front of 200 people in Jersey City to say that ALL students deserve safe and supportive schools despite the message the federal government was sending to transgender students. Since then she’s spread her message far and wide. Trans kids are just like other kids. They need love and support. She’s talked with legislators on a state and federal level. She’s spoken to a crowd of 30,000+. She’s collecting hundreds of LGBTQ+ inclusive books to get them into the hands of kids across the country. Yes, I’m proud. But, I’m also mad. She shouldn’t have to do any of this. She shouldn’t have to worry that the government will take away her rights, prevent her from playing a sport she loves, or stop her doctors from providing the intentional and medically appropriate care she needs. And we know so many trans youth are more vulnerable than her – especially trans youth of color, non-binary young people, youth without supportive families, and youth in states currently battling legislation @therealrebekah is 13 now. A lot has changed, and a lot hasn’t. Today, we fight harder than ever. #protecttranskids #youngactivist #advocateadventures #transisbeautiful #thisiswhattranslookslike #mightyrebekah #heroproject
