"Courage originally meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.” To be courageous is to be vulnerable, and to be vulnerable is to be courageous.
I designed this scarf with this dichotomy in mind; to express the courage and strength of our genderqueer community, I believe that showing your heart means that you are strong.
I’ve always been inspired by vintage art prints and scarf designs, and I’ve echoed those beautiful 1920’s muted colour schemes and shapes.
This scarf is my love letter to the transitioning, the genderqueer & those of you that express & celebrate your gender anyway that is true to you- those of you who continue to tell your story and show your heart.
I believe we’re time travelers; we’re born with our gender in our hearts, and the rest is hirstory. So, have heart & make your own Hirstory.” - Klara, (designer)
Anonymous asked: For the clothing question, I am more like fashion-butch than bike-dykey so ymmv but I check stores that cater to like stylish middle aged women rather than women in their twenties. Zara is one that I usually like for example. But any store like this usually has fits for women with bodies outside the industry standard, and styles that are butchier, more angular and boxy. I get alot of style ideas from advancedstyle, I feel solidarity there with other women w/ non-normative bodies.
Doing it Again: In Depth Kickstarter Campaign
Tobi Hill-Meyer is following up her intimate look into the sexual live of trans women with a new erotic documentary. The project currently has some preliminary sample content but needs the support of the community to be fully realized.
The goal of $6,000 is the minimum to get this project off the ground, but more will be required for things like music, subtitles, a travel fund for performers, a dedicated assistant editor, and perhaps amazingly a third volume with a specific non-binary/genderqueer perspective! Details on those additional funding milestones on the kickstarter page.
I know the trans* community is systemically not the most well off money-wise to say the least, but there are enough of us that giving even at a low amount is extremely helpful.
Please re-blog this far and wide, trans women’s sexualities need to be reclaimed, told by us and for us.
This is my first time posting any of my progress pictures anywhere, but I thought I’d give it a shot! Seeing the pictures on here really helped me a huge amount, I had no idea that I wasn’t the only trans-tomboy out there. A massive thank you to all of you! I’m only 2 months into hormones, but hopefully this isn’t too bad!

Anonymous asked: Hey there, this year I realized that I was not a gay man I think I am transgender. My current family situation doesn't allow me to start transitioning, its quite complicated. I am 20 years old but I would love to at least do something (other than makeup and clothing) to my appearence to look more femenine, I thought of starting hormone treatment but I don't even know where or how to start. I know you may not be a psychiatrist but do you have any advices? thank you very much for your time.
My experience with HRT is pretty a-typical from most. I self medicated for the most part until I found a clinic in in my area that used an informed consent model for HRT. I never actually saw a therapist.
The clinics I know that do informed consent are Howard Brown Health Centers in Chicago and Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia.
Any one else know of places that do informed consent or your own experiences getting HRT?
