Tonight is show time for "Voices- The Trans Journey In 3 Acts" put on by the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles here in Los Angeles.  I was cut from 3 monologues down to as single due to show run time limits but time is approaching.  I will actually be on stage a total of 5 times, and another  chorus member is reading a poem I wrote for the Chorus 5 years ago. (It has been that long!!) Those of you who do show business know better than to wish me good luck at this point.  I already broke a molar a week ago so we can pass on the Broken Leg thing too.  "There is no business like show business!!"

The show was a HUGE SUCCESS.  Only a handful of empty seats from people who had bought tickets but did not show, so, over 230 people in the audience (250 is theater max).  I have been napping off an Adrenaline Hangover today.  We all went out to 11:00PM dinner at a local 24hour diner type restaurant.  Two of my kids and their SO's were in the audience and loved it.  One number we did was Steven Sondheim's Children Will Listen from Into The Woods, and the cast members had submitted pre-teen pictures of ourselves that we had provided several months ago, but it had people in the audience tearing up from thinking of then and now in our lives.  One of our young Trans men had submitted a video made of pictures of his coming out in his local school district and the legal issues his family went through.  One story of coming out as Queer in the times of the HIV/AIDS epidemic was in there as well.  It was an emotional but hopeful and as the name of one of the Chorus's own songs written for us says it was "Victorious".

Vicky, the show sounds amazing.  Glad it was such a big hit.  Too bad your chorus doesn't tour nationally.  I'd love to see and hear them.

      Thank you, @MayaXD The poem is from the viewpoint of an imaginary boy/trans girl who in a novel is the me I never had the chance to be. I'm rewriting my own past.   — Davie

      Hi! I'm a questioning afab (It's ok, you can refer to me as a woman or just a person) and I have a large chest, E/F cup. I am searching for a rather cheap and comfortable binder, are the gc2b classical ones good? Do any of you have other recommendations? Thank you in advance.

      I've had many favorites over the years.  My first was Ultima IV, which managed to pack a surprisingly vibrant (and large) world onto my 128k Apple IIc.  Star Control II was the next game to really capture my attention.  Both games managed to convey a story of surpising depth for a video game.   I had a brief affair with Total Annihilation. 4x games aren't usually my thing, but TA had a mod community that kept the game fresh for a few years.  As long as I played against the computer, my weak strategy wasn't a handicap.   Minecraft is my number one game, and is likely to stay that way, given how long it has held the top slot.  I loved Lego when I was a wee child, and Minecraft scratches that itch in a big way.  My daughter is always telling me that the things I build in survival mode are better than what she sees others making in creative mode.

      When I was a teenager, I was fortunate to have my sister backing me up.  There's less than a year of age difference between us, and we went to school together and played on teams together.  We also look very much alike and had the same style.  It helps to not be alone.   I wear boxers most of the time.  Actually, around the house, that's about all I wear.  I really dislike clothing of any kind in warm weather, so about the only thing my partners can get me to wear is shorts and a t-shirt.  One layer, nothing underneath.  I can be pretty stubborn about things like that.   A lot of the time, I wear basketball shorts.  Silky texture, good at sweat wicking.  If I have to wear a shirt, I often use ones that have the arms cut out.  Anything to stay cool in summer.  Bonus is that it is androgynous looking or even masculine.

      Hello & welcome @Beginsat43 . Nice to make your virtual acquaintance. I relate to several things you shared. Due to intellectual incompatibility, I also found making friends difficult during the early part of my life. To compound the issue, I was raised in a deeply fearful Irish Catholic family - my mother was afraid of everything and indoctrinated me into that legacy of fear. It took concerted effort on my part to learn the art of friendliness and how to relate to others to realize intimacy on levels other than that of the intellectual. One practical part of this process, which is rather amusing, is that I had to adjust my conversational lexicon because I had spent much more time reading (I also did not own a TV until about 2012) than talking to people that I rendered myself "conversant", but unrelatable - I'd speak words that most folks do not know. (Sometimes I'd get asked in a mocking way, "what are you, a librarian?") To say it's been worth the effort to learn better how to relate is an understatement. I am blessed with many wonderful, beloved and loving friends in my life. Related to that, my study of Eastern religions has taught me in part that the intellect is but a tool and not my identity. This knowledge has deepened my understanding of how my existence is an aspect of a unified oneness, and that truly there is nothing to fear. Also, like you, I began to self-medicate at age 19. And, as I gain insight into my asexuality and gender identity, I realize that, similar to what you describe, my attraction to men has been very much steeped in envy. I am gratified to hear you are feeling positive and eager to realize your genuine identity. It is indeed exhilarating to let go of restraints which have bound us for so long. In many ways, it's like starting a new life. Cheers to you.

      I'd also add, that a friend of mine does trans yoga through her trans affirming enterprise "My Feminine Heart." She's a sweetheart and I'd be remiss if I didn't point you her way.   Hugs!
