Estrogentrification: Jordan Wieleba

I look in the mirror and see a person looking back at me every day, a person I didn’t necessarily think I’d ever see. I like that person. I genuinely like that person. I like the way she holds herself. I like the confidence you can see behind her muted green eyes. She has seen me at my worst and she has seen me at my best.

Miriam E* Suzanne

It’s the third Saturday in October, which everyone knows is “Announce Your New Name/Gender — If You Were Once Called Eric A Meyer, But Not The One Who Wrote The CSS Reset, The Other One, You Know — Day”. It’s a long title for a little-celebrated holiday, but it’s important to some of us (me).
