Transgendered Day of Remembrance 2013

This day is so very important. I needed to write something so here it is.

Transgendered Day Of Remembrance 2013

Today, I am grateful to be alive; especially after

all of the horror that I have suffered throughout

the course of my entire life. This will be my first
day of remembrance I will take part in as myself.

For far too long, Lily has been crippled inside her
cage but she finally stands tall and she no longer
hides in the face of adversity. Especially this day,

when we remember the family who we have lost.

I weep for each of our brothers and sisters who

are no longer with us. I will never be able to

hug them and get to know them for the beauty

which radiated from deeply within their skins.

These journeys were cut short by malice, hate,

and worst of all… ignorance. But they died for a

noble cause that all of us want to feel every day,

becoming true to themselves as they really are.

Each day is a better day for us, as acceptance is
becoming stronger for our one truth. And yet, our

internal and external fight continues as we look

back and remember those who never lost the fight.

To every brother and sister whom I will never meet,

I want you to know that we unconditionally love you

even when society ended your lives too soon. You
are all beautiful and you will always be in our hearts.

Lily Rose

Thank you Lily. For years i felt that the day of remberance was for the girls who were never able to acknowledge their true identities to the world, who only met at support groups in secret and then passed away unknown to the friends in support groups they had come to know. The day has grown in importance to me to include our trans community but i'll always feel for those girls who still meet in secret and never get to feel the life i've come to know.

Hugs,

Charlie

Thank you for sharing this, Lily. I have been observing TDOR since 2008 when I first knew about it (probably because that was the year I discovered Laura's) and the list never seems to get any shorter. I have, however, been grateful for discovering a community that pays its respects like this as there really is a sense of solidarity in seeing everybody pay their respects and stand up for what we believe in in one voice. It shocks me how many of these totally unnecessary deaths are concentrated in one or two particular areas of the world. There don't seem to be any deaths here, but I am not at all complacent about that.

I only hope that one year, in my lifetime, there won't be a TDOR list. May the souls of those who were needlessly murdered rest in peace.

      That was....... interesting. Mom finally text me this morning and told me she got my letter, wanted me to call her this evening. Finally got off work and called her about 8. Really got mostly a lack of any real reaction. She asked a couple questions and kinda tried to guilt-trip me over my wife and boys possibly leaving. (No they aren’t) And that was it.  I’m grateful that she didn’t blow up at me or anything but I really expected some kind of response.  It’s kinda got me a little concerned.

      The rest of the clothes I ordered came in. I had slightly better luck with a few of the tops. The sweater I posted in the what are you wearing thread is one of them. It's mostly the arms that are too small. Lesson learned and returns are free. There is also a mini-skirt. It's black, pleated and shorter than I anticipated. It'll be good as long as I don't bend over. What a shame I have to up my "act and move like a lady" skills. My wife asked about what I bought, she's only seen the sweater at this point (I can tell she's jealous). Before I could answer she asked if there were any dresses. No, no dresses. Skirts? Yea, I replied in a matter-of-fact kind of tone. I quickly reiterated one of her previous statements that I could wear skirts as long as she didn't see it. The problem is she would see me leave and/or come home. I mentioned this fact and agreed that I wouldn't parade around or rub it in face in any way.   So again it appears she is becoming more accepting. We'll see how it goes when she sees me leave for coffee tomorrow morning in a mini-skirt and knee high boots.   night everyone

      The phone case..... I actually got it awhile before I was out. It had one of those ring things on it but it blocked the image so there was no love lost when it fell off. Not that you can tell in the pic but my phone is rose gold. More things about myself I should have paid better attention to.

      @KymmieL I think I owe you an apology.  I wasn’t looking for a job but one has fallen into my lap.  Part time working from home.  I was on Facebook and saw a post from someone who I didn’t know I responded .  She got back to me and 3 hours later I have a job

      Alexa found me the station Top Pop so I've been listening that a lot lately. I'm starting to like Ava Max.

      I have my fingers crossed but from what I've read so far the Senate Republicans are already trying to gum up the works.

      As far as federal regulations go this is changing.  The Biden administration has instructed those involved with this to review the rules and to make sure gender is on the list.  The prior administration had thinly interpreted the law to be sex and not gender, and only for employment.

      Hello everyone and thank you for your replies! Audrey, it’s a pleasure to meet you I look forward to reading of your experience in the forums!   with all the other things that I told everyone about in my initial post I somehow forgot to mention that I have been put in touch with a tri-state trans gender support group and I have already had a phone call from the moderator of the group. That put a bit of a sparkle in my eyes!   The not so good news is that I have found out what I accept you but I don’t approve I said by my wife means which oh really nothing. My realization of this came the other evening as I was washing the dishes and she approached me and in an almost lighthearted manner told me about the new nominee for assistant secretary of health home she characterized as a homely Man with long hair.  She indicated by CVS that she thought that hole of a trans women were also ma’am and that I can foods me. So she made herself clear later by saying you were a man and one of these days she will wake up from this fantasy and behave like a man. I thought we had gained some ground but I guess I was mistaken. Why the gift of clothes I don’t know as it does not fit with her statement.   Please forgive me for spoiling the uplifting post I’ve earlier.   still got a love that sister of mine!   Take care and blessings to everyone. Willa   P.S. moderators, will you please watch out for any Siri dictation quirks? Thank you so much.

      Thank you everyone! Went to Best Buy and picked up a Sony 4K player and hooked it up to the TV in my hotel room. $199 and now I have beautiful, razor sharp movies to watch. I'll get one, then time to get some sleep; I'll be up for my Hibiclens shower and relax before my car gets here to take me to the clinic. The magic starts at 6:00 a.m. as per the doctor.

      That's awesome Trilly! I used to live to eat, now I try to eat to live. I have an elliptical in my garage with a computer hooked up to big speakers. I'd put on Brooks and Dunn "Last Rodeo" video and work out. I've been thinking about going to the gym and doing core strength training now since I read that with cardio you loose breast fat along with the rest. Dam, I'm trying to make them bigger not smaller. Cardio might be what you want though Tyler. Funny, you're trying to gain a deep voice and beard while I'm trying to do just the opposite. Jamie
