Week 79. I've been walking around in my new body for a couple weeks now and I feel SO different. Several of those who can see have told me my aura has changed completely. The initial analogy I used of it feeling like handcuffs being removed still stands. I'm now experiencing a lack of painful restraint...a stillness and a mobility so thorough that they transcend lingual description. The liberation is slowly permeating me from body to mind to heart, allowing my true self to shine thru eagerly rather than having to be dragged out. There was something very real, very powerful confining my spirit that was removed with the 100-something cc's of tissue and skin. Before my surgery I was terrified of how I would feel, what I might become in this freedom. I see now that I only fear becoming the person I used to be. And that's impossible now: "a mind once expanded can never again return to its original dimensions." - fortune cookie And once these handcuffs come off, they don't grow back. (Ironic side note: I have more cleavage now than I've ever had.) # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins

Week 78. Walking in public has always been a nightmare of inner turmoil from my dysphoria and the external deflection of people's reactions to seeing a dude with boobs strolling down the street. Since my surgery, people's reactions have shifted but are still present enough to make me feel like a focal point. But I care not, cuz inside I'm mothafucking John Travolta, circa SNF, struttin' confidently to my own beat cuz I'm in love. The outside finally fits what's on the inside and there is no shame staring back at me in the mirror. Only love. I feel like I can finally sing with Chaka Khan now and mean it - cuz I do. I worked really really hard on my insides and my outsides and now I do love myself. To see with retrospective eyes that this was within my power all along is more than a little disappointing. However, this light wouldn't be this bright if I had never known the depths of darkness that I also have the power to create. I understand that I sometimes instigate my own pain. Maybe in my new future I'll gain the wisdom to instigate my own joy. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transvisibility #queer #lovewins

Week 77. My 2nd post op app this morning brought even more relief. Dr. Kyllo took my nipple stitches out and the bandages covering the drainage holes on my sides. I'm not supposed to flex yet so I'm not, but damned if I ain't eager to do a pull up or two. I wondered for so long what I looked like under there. At 17, I won the midwest high school regionals for female bench press, weighing in at 115 lbs and lifting 140 lbs. At 28, certain professionals, shall we say, who valued physical achievement more than anything, watched me break an east coast record of 72 push ups in a minute. But I could only wonder what I had built under those fat masses on my chest. Now I know and now I don't feel like all those inclined push ups were in vain. I feel like all the work I did on my body as a way to deal with my pain might be able to now become work I do because I love my body. It's a simple thought but its implications are profoundly shifting and healing for me. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transandshirtless #queer #lovewins

What if Pan was genderqueer? Wait, what do you mean โ€œifโ€?! . Some creatures blend in to survive, others dazzle... sometimes we feel like doing a little of both! Playing around with natural pigment camouflage and re-membering the magic of blending in which is the magic of belonging which is queer and fluid because it calls into question where our outlines and surfaces end and the outlines and surfaces of the earth and of other beings ๐ŸŒฒ begin. #glamo ๐Ÿ’„courtesy of @queerquechua โ€™s brilliant peacocking skills.

RECOVERY UPDATE! The drainage tubes came out for the final reveal this morning. My chest looks FANTASTIC. Dr. Kyllo was quite pleased with his work and with how I'm healing, especially since I underwent 2 surgeries in 24 hours. In my pre-op app I told him that I was trying to be a male model and apparently he took me seriously (as he should have) cuz these cuts are flawless. Also, my new profile! ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ˜‚ I look exactly like me for the first time. I was able to walk standing straight up and down for the first time since puberty! It will take some time for my shoulders to open up and relax after decades of shrugging to hide the boobage, but my Dr's referral for massage and acupuncture will help that along over the summer. I'm so fucking happy. I knew I wasn't ready for all this happy...I might literally burst at the seams. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #queer #lovewins #topsurgery #polyclinic #drkyllo

Taken 10 years apart. Although I rocked the long, luscious curls and makeup, the picture on the right is more who I truly am.

Week 76. The liberties bestowed upon me are not lost. As I lay here recovering from gender affirming surgery, I'm also freely adding my voice to the many who have gone before me. The stories of transgender heroes are few and often loosely recorded, mass media blind to our existence because they know, as well as you and me, that knowledge is power, awareness equals change, that Love always wins. An awareness of human equality would ruin our global game of C.R.E.A.M. I'm fortunate to live in a place where I'm not stoned for sharing my story. However, I do live in a world where my transgender tribe is still beaten, murdered, outcast, ridiculed, and dehumanized. So for TransPRIDE this year, I'd like to share this video and add my existence, my voice, my story, to the rich, uncovered history of my people in an attempt to bring the power, to spark the change and to be the Love I want to see in this world. Happy Trans PRIDE, y'all. With gratitude to my ancestors ๐Ÿ™ **Special thanks to @obrien5054 (Jen O'Brien) for making this dream come true ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–** Link in comments & bio.

SURGERY UPDATE: I have not had to go back into surgery, which is cool. The swelling and draining from the right side is becoming more normal, though I am bleeding from the tube entry site. I'm also ready to do handstands and go skateboarding and play in the sun...but I can't see straight yet and my wee legs are bit wobbly. I was allowed to take off the ace bandage and the gauze to see my chest for the first time. All I could do was cry...but not too hard cuz I'm fucking bleeding everywhere. With each graze of my hoodie on my exposed chest flies a thought that used to be only a dream- they're really gone. I'm really free. I don't have to hide any part of me. And the tears start flooding again. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins #topsurgery

What do you do when youโ€™ve been sick for 2 weeks and are going stir crazy? Watch season 2 of @queereye and reinvent the image you put out to the world when it comes to clothing. I started dressing more masculine in my early/mid-twenties and because I felt I missed out on wearing all the fun clothes from the boys section in my childhood and teen years, Iโ€™ve been in a rut of wearing clothes I no longer feel empowered or confident in. Iโ€™ve been that childlike butch for a long time and have loved it but Iโ€™m ready for clothes that showcase more of who I am on the inside. Anyone wanna go drop off this pile to a place that takes donations and then go thrift shopping with me?! . . . . . . #springcleaning #byebyebabybutch #newme #butch #femalemasculinity #moc #masculineofcenter #queermasculinity #sheher

Week 75. It's happening. My surgery is tomorrow morning and almost three decades of pain will come to a roaring 48-hr finale. Even though I've been clean from narcotics longer than I've been sober from alcohol, my addiction follows in the shadows always, patiently waiting for a time to strike. After serious consideration between my surgeon and myself, we decided to proceed without the use of narcotics so that I'm not tripped up now when I'm doing so well. This means I have to endure the first 48 hours before the pain starts to lessen. I will be relying heavily on cannabis whole plant extract to ease the pain and inflammation. I have no doubt that I'll want those pills, and I have no doubt that my true, free voice will tell me to fuck off and grit down for the glory on the other side. Let the battle ensue. I've already won. Many, many thanks again to everyone who donated to my surgery fund and who encouraged others to. My heart is full going into this life-changing operation and I can't tell you how lucky I am to feel that way. ๐Ÿ™โค HERE WE GO!! # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins

Week 74. I can barely stand all the love, connection and inspiration that this week has brought to me. My time at #BHoF felt like a giant family reunion, including members I had not yet met in person. I was surrounded by people who have seen me thru my worst struggles and who were there with hugs and kisses, not only celebrating my health and progress, but also the stunning performance my wife gave, which won her the title of Ms. Exotic World 2018. I'm completely humbled and honored to have been adopted by the burlesque community. I feel I owe a great debt to all the powerful strippers and drag artists who have helped me understand how to see a person's heart and soul before their outer glow. I needed that wisdom so that I could see my own heart under all the manufactured glow that I had mistaken for identity. My wife has been my brightest guiding light as I've learned this vital lesson of becoming genuine and she's always been my Queen because of her deep wisdom and compassion. Now she is this entire community's Queen and I couldn't be more excited because I know this means all of you get to experience some of her magic now, too - the same magic that has helped me heal. I'm so proud of her, of us. I'm so grateful for all of you. AND 1 WEEK TILL SURGERY!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #trans #transmasculine #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins #burlesque #sheisINGA

Week 73. This is Carl, the camera op. He likes the natural light in my living room. And yes, that is a Sony fs7 in my kitchen, and yes, we (@obrien5054 ) turned my tiny flat into the first set of my documentary. IT'S UNDER WAY! Because it's a transition, timing is crucial and we'll be shooting sporadically throughout the year. I'm already so excited, not just cuz I get to be filmed by a camera that literally turns me on, but cuz the people working on this film and the message it will bring are what light me up. The universe sought fit to send me a producer who is also a licensed counselor, which I anticipate was for a reason. But however this process goes, however difficult it might be to face my past, we will not let these gifts be wasted. More than just a film will come from this. More than just a story is going into it. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins #documentary

"Take me down to your dance floor. I won't mind the people when they stare. Paint a different color on your front door And tomorrow we will still be there." Like Mercury's "Love of my life", if "a song for you" ain't about queer desire and longing for partnering that's, well, hard, I don't know what is. There are so many ways that happens. And doesn't happen. On my mind particularly are some Southern men. Sad to be hearing that the new Bohemian Rhapsody is scrubbing away the gay. Would be a powerful depiction for all of us fan boys to see Mercury on stage in all his queer bisexual rock star spandexed gender bending. #oneday #wewillallbefree #maybe or #wewillbedead and it won't matter #queermasculinity #queerappalachia #hillbilly #hoodoo #electricdirt

Week 70. At my therapy session this morning we had to talk about how to deal with ALL THE FUCKING GOOD THAT'S HAPPENING! There have been huge shifts for me recently that have revealed light at the end of a tunnel I barely knew I was in; I had called it home for so long. The donations, shares and messages of encouragement for my top surgery fundraiser alone is an outpouring of love that I do not know how to handle. I have dealing with pain down flat...accepting acceptance, loving love, being brought back to health and wholeness at the hands of generosity and compassion - these are lessons I've never learned. Coupled with the incredible experience of being involved with the @facesoffortitude project and speaking with people who had all endured the same trauma...I am truly at a loss of what to think of all the positivity that is coming to life within and around me. I'm still autistic and energy is energy, so the power of this good completely overwhelms me to the point of shutting down, but this time there is no pain, no suffering attached to my capacity being met. For me that is a new level of freedom that I didn't know was possible. Thank you, from my depths, to everyone who has donated, shared and encouraged my surgery campaign, and to Mariangela for including me in her wonderful gift to this world. You have made it possible for me to learn these beautiful lessons...and to have the sexy man chest I've always wanted ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #survivor #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins #facesoffortitude

What's a sunny Thursday good for if not practicing a little self-bondage? #shibari #shibariart #blackmetal #taake #truenorwegianblackmetal #genderqueer #queermasculinity #metal #makemetalgayagain #queermetal #queermetalhead

I've always been disappointed in Black Metal. It's the genre that's meant the most to me in my life, and that I identify with the most, yet it's problems are many. Metal as a whole has been a white boys club since the beginning, and Black Metal even more so. For a genre built on rebellion and defiance of oppressive systems, it has participated since its inception in enforcing white Christian societal norms, sometimes violently. Whether that be the maintenance of heteronormative hierarchies that exclude, objectify and degrade women, or the ridicule, rejection, and violent retribution against LGBTQ persons within or without of the scene. Black Metal provides an entire lifeway to adherents, more than any other subgenre of metal; it's time we start talking about what it says. #genderqueer #genderidentity #makemetalgayagain #blackmetal #gaymetalhead #queer #queermasculinity #queertheory #selfie #queermetalhead #queermetal #darkthrone #trapistransphobic #cuteunderwear #queermodel #nonbinary #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia

Cute little excerpt from our Family Issue #2 - โ€œMelissa Etheridge was singing to me, I had a dirty schooner of lemonade and a beautiful butch woman asked me if I wanted to learn how to play pool.

Week 66 & 67. Some weeks the pain is too full, the changes so drastic, the awakenings too frequent for any kind of update to seem possible. In these times I'm learning so much so quickly that choosing what to share seems futile, other than to say that I'm ok, I've survived the worst again to be better on the other side. As a creature who navigates life via pattern recognition, I am humbled to recognize that when I go thru these intense waves of change, the universe sends more people to speak encouragement into my life. They show up out of nowhere, their words of love and acceptance soothing my stress by surprise. I've never been left alone when I feel the most alone and I'm so grateful to be surrounded by people willing to speak their support. It may not seem like much to you, so little in fact that it may seem futile. But I assure you, the strongest love comes in the smallest packages and I am better for your generosity. # #johnniejoyweekly #ftm #ftmtransition #ftmlife #transgender #ftmofig #trans #transguy #transman #transition #testosterone #queermasculinity #transmodel #model #portrait #bodypositivity #journey #thisiswhattranslookslike #vitaminT #queerbodies #legalizetrans #transisbeautiful #transandproud #aspergers #asd #transonthespectrum #queer #lovewins

Queer icons: drawn from many facets of the gender and #queer spectrum, these images give visibility to a population that's generally underrepresented in the art world. Pictured: @jairo_dcano, an artist in NYC. ๐ŸŽจ + โœ๏ธ: @gbrlgrcrmn
