A love story.
Oprah.com has just posted a love story. I know, that's what you would expect from Oprah, but this one is a little different.
"It was amid all this that my love disclosed something that should have mattered. Something the whole of my history would have insisted mattered, and yet, did not. Not really. He told me, in his typically open, candid style, that he had not been born a man."There's also this succint and so-very-correct summary of just what it means to be transgendered:
"There is this misbegotten notion that transmen and women are about playing dress-up and fooling people. But to be trans is to feel the truth so acutely you can't fake it. It is to be so consumed with the truth of who you are that you are willing to risk everything to inhabit it. To refuse to be what other people have decided you are—this is an act of courage few individuals dare try."Go read this love story for yourself.
