At one time I thought I really liked holidays. Over the years as we have lost family, I realized that what I really liked was the time off to spend with family and friends. Today I give much greater thanks for my family than ever before. I have truly learned what it means to have others you can connect to in heart, mind, and soul. My own journey is one that is unique, as we each are unique. I have been amazingly blessed to have been able to continue to have all of my family as close allies through my entire transition.
What an appropriate day for me to do my first blog on jaysays.com. Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is a day that we pause to remember those that have been taken from us only for being different. On the 19th the San Antonio Gender Association along with the MCC San Antonio sponsored our Observance.
