When I decided to embark on Trans-muted I really didn’t have high hopes of getting many people that wanted to tell their story. For the past four or five years I’ve been trying to start a non-profit organization that is geared towards helping those of us that are transgender, our significant others, and families. Each time I’ve worked towards this goal, the community that I was in, at the time, showed little interest or weren’t ready for activism.
This time though, the response has been amazing. I am so excited and extremely nervous to really dig in and start the interviews and writing. Taking this step for me, has been so hard because of my ‘issues’, but I hope in the end it will be rewarding in the fact that I will be able to grow as a person and help my fellow transgender brothers and sisters.
This project has given me a mission, a purpose if you will, and that’s something that I’ve struggled with for a long time.
