1+ year as openly trans. 7 months on HRT. Hundreds of major and micro aggressions of transphobia/transmisogyny and counting. I still feel happier and more whole than ever, and yet. I can't help but feel it's shockingly appropriate that you can't spell allies without the word lies. Unfortunately in my experience, too many folks out there who are "uplifting" and tokenizing trans women when it's convenient/beneficial to them, are more than happy to remind us of our assigned genders, bodies & genitals when it comes time to put us in our place.

I said it. Sorry, not sorry.

I missed you coming out as trans, Austin. I thought you were just flying under your own banner. Congrats, my friend. You're an inspiration πŸ’œ

Why the fuck does anyone think it's their business how anyone else identifies? Keep fighting the good fight (even though there should be no reason to have to fight); you're awesome!

You’re one of the most amazing, special humans i’ve ever met. I hate that you are dealing with trash people. ❀️Id totally throw a slumber party in your honor though. 😬

Dear friends, Brooke has dramatically improved since yesterday. Getting back to her frisky and sassy self. Looks like we have a bit of time to a full recovery, but her rapid positive response to treatment leads us all to believe that we've nipped it in the bud and moving in the right direction. Portland friends, I'll be in your city for a couple of weeks starting tomorrow. Let me know if you wanna get together and do something fun! ... See MoreSee Less

Our littlest boy has had one health issue after another, and he's only 6! We've already had a couple emergency vet visits, so I can really feel your pain! I hope she gets all fixed up and it isn't a recurring issue for you two! <3

So glad that sweet girl is recovering! πŸ’œ Thanks for the update and enjoy PDX!

Wonderful! It’s the worst when you’re not feeling well.

Two things: 1. If anyone contacts or friends you using my name and doesn't have over 10k followers on Insta and FB, it definitely isn't me! Report and block those folks.

2. Brooke is resting well, but we had to get a hotel room another night in Roseville, CA, delaying our journey to Portland while we wait for her blood work to come back.

3. This photo is from days ago. It's just really cute, so I used it for this post rather than snap another one.

Thank you to everyone who has given their love and support!

Guinness sends pawsitive thoughts to both of you!

I’ve seen people post the vet office information so people can go directly to the source to help out. Maybe that can avoid some weirdness. Get well soon, Brooke!

Hope Brooke is ok! Are you playing or just passing through Portland. I’d love to give you a squeeze if you have the time.

We woke up this morning, and Brooke started vomiting blood. I'm not sure what's going on yet, but we are already at an animal hospital in Roseville, CA, who kindly managed to work us into their schedule immediately. Although I'm not sure how much this emergency vet bill is going to run us, I'm incredibly cash poor at the moment. If anyone has the ability to help, holler in my DM's, and please send all the good vibes you can. ❀️ ... See MoreSee Less

Oh no I’m so sorry! I work at an animal hospital and if you have any questions about her care or treatment plan, let me know.

Just fired off a venmo for you and the baby

That is so scary - sending you love / support from Oakland where we are going through pet emergencies as well

I don't care about conspiracy theories or speculation because none of it matters. I just want it said that this will empower and embolden him and his people in ways that anyone who studies history can easily predict. We are in dark days, regardless of the outcome of any future elections. If you are in community with or from a marginalized community, get prepared to show up emotionally and to defend each other physically. The performative power of the age of the meme is on the wane. ... See MoreSee Less

My first thought was that he's going to become even more unhinged after this. His followers are only going to become more devoted and enthralled. If the shooter is a part of any minority group things will get far more difficult for anyone who shares a characteristic with them. A scary time just got a whole lot more scary.

The more empowered and emboldened he/they become just means we need to match or overpower their energy. We aren’t winning this at the ballot box, so we better be prepared.

Truth spoken

As you may or may not be aware, I'm relocating to the Pacific Northwest. You may not know, though, that over the years, I've moved into the realm of becoming a professional Muay Thai coach. If you live in Oregon or Washington, I'm officially available for private lessons and seminars. Do you want/need a boxing coach in your life who is trans, steeped in radical politics, and has a developed understanding of trauma informed martial arts coaching? Are you an experienced fighter who needs more sparring looks from a pressure fighter, heavy pad rounds, or instruction in Muay Thai clinching? I have a decade of training and fighting literally all over the world and would love to help you develop your skillset, no matter where you are in your stage of development. From beginners to pros, I have ideas and coaching eyes that are sure to build up or add to your existing fight vocabulary, and I'm happy to work with all budgets! Holler at me in my DM's with any questions. β€οΈπŸŒˆπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful!! May I share?

As far as I can tell, that term is used exclusively to attack J.K. Rowling who, in my opinion, is one of the greatest writers alive. Her views on gender are completely irrelevant. Love your music, Austin, but we disagree on this one.

Don't fuck TERFS, they don't deserve it. πŸ’…

Brooke and I marched as monitors with the color guard at SF Pride, helping them take home the award for best musical performance. I was stoked, Brooke was less than enthusiastic when she realized the ribbon wasn't edible! ... See MoreSee Less
