Forget Everything you Believe About Me

My Primrose Path is Littered with Thorns

I suppose I have had some amazing advantages throughout my transition. I was wildly accepted by nearly all my blood and extended family. My wife didn’t leave me. My employer accepted me. And being open about my journey lead me to new and exciting friendships.

Now that all the braggadocio is out of the way, wanna guess how much of that is true? I’ll tell you; almost none of it.




The place to embrace the Triumphs and Tribulations of those who Transitioned and risked everything to live authentically.
