Trans Week of Awareness

Here’s Why It’s Absolutely Never Too Late to Transition

 When you’re an egg (i.e. a trans person who either hasn’t realized it or isn’t ready to transition yet), it can be difficult to wrap your mind around transitioning. Even if you’ve always dreamed of doing it, it’s a scary thing to think about if you don’t have a support system in place. 

However, in the words of Rip Torn in Defending Your Life, “fear is like a giant fog. It sits on your brain and blocks everything – real feelings, true happiness, real joy. But you lift it, buddy,  you’re in for the ride of your life.”

A few days ago, writer, musician, and “When I Tell You” screenwriter Mia Moore reminded trans folks everywhere that it’s truly never too late to embrace who you are and take the plunge. 

No sooner did Moore tweet than dozens of other gorgeous, thriving trans folks posted their own post-transition glow-ups.

Here’s the real T: a lot of people think that coming out as trans means you’ll lose everything: your friends, your family, your job. And the hard truth is that sometimes that’s absolutely correct. The world is not kind to trans folks. But you know what? It’s worth it anyway. You’ll make new friends, find people who love you, and thrive in your own way. Because building a life you love is a whole lot easier when you’re beaming with happiness.
