Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you,
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

That reminds me
I think I remember a South Dakota LGBTQIA marching band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in 2022.

1999 we met and married :icon_archery:
Fall 2018 The woman hiding behind my husband's facade is coming out full time! :icon_female:
She began MTF HRT but had adverse reactions, so gave up on transitioning medically.
Summer 2022 I went through gender confirmation surgery as a result of cancer.
2024 her cardiologist and a therapist wrote letters approving of resuming HRT, she's legally changing her name, and now she's getting on the calendar for gender surgery!

Hi, gennee.

I have no idea! They announced it in the news a couple of days ahead of time. But now, nothing. No news or photos. I wasn't able to attend, so now I am searching to find out what happened.

Ok, so I found some pics on Facebook. The parade was a huge success. Only one heckler with a bullhorn. He was appropriately dealt with by security and our wonderful Rapid City Police!

Did the parade organizers already decide to make this an annual event?
Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding. Accepting yourself as the woman you are is very liberating.
Never underestimate the appreciation and respect of authenticity.  Be brave, be strong.  Try a little kindness.  I am a brown eyed brunette.

Yes! They worked really hard to get everything planned (permits, news releases, advertising flyers). Toni is one of the organizers at the Center for Equality. She came to one of our Trans Veteran Support Group meetings. That's how I learned of it and got the flyer to post.
