After five weeks of total vocal rest, a necessary part of healing after a vocal cord surgery, I've started to speak again. My voice is weak and only s...
My journey continues to have its ups and downs, helping me balance confidence with humility. There are days when I feel in complete control of my sexuality and connected with my partner and other times when I feel like my libido has gone missing, never to return again.

Hipster Jesus, you may have been a fantasy after all. Maybe if I truly want to live what I say I believe, it's time to stop defining you at all, even for myself. Life is short, and the only certainty is death. I don't want to spend my tiny moment here arguing over what is right for others.

It's been over two weeks since Miami Carnival and I am still reliving it in my mind. It was one of my best carnivals to date, and I hesitate to say it was better than Trinidad, but it was almost on par
As the capacity to love one another grows, we become increasingly able to rest comfortably in the knowledge that we are loved for who we are, not what we do.
