Throwback to Day 14: Our last day in Waimanolo. Time to rest and relax! It’s been a busy few vacation days. Maybe a little tennis here and there. But seriously.... I’m gonna miss this place. I want to come back here and rent a few of these cottages with friends one year!

We can't choose our flesh and blood but we can still have a 'chosen family' - a family made up of supportive and loving friends who will truly be there for you, truly be interested in you and truly respect your boundaries and needs. That's the kind of family I want. . . . . . . . #someofthemostpoisonouspeoplecomedisguisedasfamily #poisonouspeople #disguisedasfamily #indisguise #toxic #chosenfamily #loveandsupport #family #loved #blessed #harrypotter #fleshandblood #iwouldhavechosendifferent #quotes #riseaboveit #bethebetterperson #thedursleys #dudley #auntpetunia #unclevernon

woke up this morning and still couldn’t find enough words to sum up last night. this marathon training- and life in general- has been a rollercoaster. but in that room, surrounded by the energy of people I love, I remembered why I’m doing this, and why I’ll continue to do the things that make me feel and believe...not only in the power of hope, but also in myself. incredibly grateful to everyone for supporting this journey and for challenging me to keep going forward. 🖤🖤🖤 next stop: 26.2 in the big 🍎

My prayer for every young black woman is that you find your chosen family early in the birthing of your womanhood. It’ll transform your life. Work hard to cultivate relationships with warrior women who will cheer for you when no-one else is celebrating you. These amazing black queens are my three best friends. They know where ALL the bodies are buried! They love me hard. I am blessed by their love. ❤️ #friendship #love #chosenfamily

Throwback to Day 13: Beach day with Carolyn!!! Four years ago, Carolyn met Clinton and I in Oahu and had a road trip to North shore! I’ll post that trip another time. This year, she came to join us on the east side. It was a Beautiful day! Waimanolo is one of the best beaches in the world. It’s amazing when you live a life where you see the people you love, while visiting incredible places around the world. #dreamlife Xo  Sister bear! Ps Ny husband is in love with you. And to you all, you can tell by my skin colour here, that I finally have achieved my Hawaiian tan! 🌺 #socialitewanderlust #Hulahideaway2018 #travelholic #travel #travelmore #tribe #chosenfamily #chromecast #traveller #travellife #wonderlust #instagay #wanderlust #allwineallthetime #beach #hawaii #oahu #instatravel #instatraveller #instablog #instablogger #travelphoto #exploreyourself #mylife #travelphotography #instaphotography #landscape

I think crazy things can happen when you are loved well. 💕 It’s been officially two years since started this coaching journey and joined this team of empowered women. The only regret: why didn’t I start sooner?! I love these babes with all my heart and they have held me throughout the change of season in my life. Today. I am grateful to be apart of such an impeccable group of women, showing up every day to provide health + wellness to others. #chosenfamily

A delayed congratulations to my dears @julsbindi @hunterweb I was so honored & humbled to officiate your union. I love you infinitely, as does our entire magical tribe that is ever expanding...And yes after my 7 year break from burning man you two are worth every second to return, make costumes., meet new loved ones, get lost, get left, get forgotten, get found, and get as dusty, dehydrated and dazed as ever even whilst sober 🤣 🦄 🐺 #union #chosenfamily #love #playaalchemist #magic

A couple of days ago, for the first time, a heavy wave of dysphoria washed over me because of my lack of a womb—yet another item to add to my long running binary trans woman check list. Dysphoria is so weird, and sometimes disconnected from seemingly rational functions of the brain, just bombarding you when you least expect it until it retracts far enough back enough into the shadows that you can feel okay.

I decided at the beginning of my transition that I had no interest in preserving anything for the potentiality of having kids, and there’s still nothing I regret about exorcising the demon called testosterone posthaste once it dawned on me that it was the only way I could be happy. Plus, after teaching classrooms full of tiny drunk humans for over two years, I have serious reservations about the idea of ever wanting kids in any proximity, but especially no time soon. And yet—there was a small conversation about changing bodies and the intensity of pregnancy, and that familiar feeling that rests somewhere between disgust and loss bubbled up and then expanded. All the things I’d never be able to do or feel—just another way that my body is not as it should be. That even if I someday wanted to, I’d never be able to be a mom.

Of course, all of that is nonsense. There are women of all kinds who can’t get pregnant, and people who aren’t women that do. There are as many ways to be a family as there are families. As hard as dysphoria sometimes is, trying to separate all the parts of me—my identity, my hormones, my body, the society I live in—can be even harder. Why we feel how we feel.

Maybe because those lines are all imagined and arbitrary. And, finally, all of those things match up in a way that actually fits. That’s more than enough for me. (pictured: me on the stone slab where lion Jesus was killed, or where Snow White’s comatose body was kept—for extra melodrama)

Hanchen! Last year I went on one of the most liberating experiences on my life. Today, exactly one year ago, you landed in South Africa, and became part of that experience. Since you landed here on the 19th of September last year, through my time in Europe and back again, you were always there - physically and in spirit. You were my base camp, you taught me to like beer, you helped me with German Skype sessions for a sim card and you made me a swan out of towels. You guided me through Europe and your “creepy face” is all over my albums. I’d do it all again. I love you SO much! 💜 #nostalgic #sister #travelbuddy #companion #chosenfamily #friendshipgoals #oneyearago #toomuchlove

I don’t have the words (and those of you who know me well know that I am rarely at a loss for those) to express how very proud I am of my theater kiddoes. The “She Done Tried It” cast and crew rocked the stage last night. I am truly blessed to be “mom” to this sublimely talented group of artists. I love them all as family. 🎭 💕❤️👑 #Drag #dragqueen #instadrag #dragking #supportyourlocaldragqueens #SheDoneTriedIt #140Alex #rochester #rochesterny #theater #family #chosenfamily #love #friends #stagemomager

Recovered from the Yorkshire Dales 3 peak challenge last weekend (although we just did it for fun, giggles and catch ups). 24 1/2 miles in around 8.5hrs (I thought I was hiking 12miles for some reason 🤣... surprise).

This love is the closest I’ve ever had to a sister. Over the last few years, this amazing human has grown, broken out of her shell and become one of the sweetest and most talented people I’ve ever been lucky enough to know. I love you dearly @spanishforocean and my life is better for having you in it.

I met with members of my global Vipassana family this weekend, Nat and Cam from Salt Lake City. I met Nat on my first Satipatthana course at Dhamma Mahavana close to Yosemite when we were both living in San Francisco. Today I leave for another Satipatthana at Dhamma Padhana here in the UK. The Satipatthana Sutta or discourse focuses on the foundations of mindful practices which cultivate loving kindness. I will be off line until 1/10. #vipassana #goenka #vipassanafamily #chosenfamily #meditation #insight #dhammapadhana #silence #compassion #lovingkindness #mentalhealthawareness #nostigma #the-listening-rooms.com #brighton #hove #brightonandhove #lewes #hurstpierpoint
