Today is Transgender Day of Visibility.
It is also the last day of the State of Emergency that was declared two years ago when Covid first erupted in Italy.
So here's me visibly en femme in my new location for the first time and wearing my mask out for the last time.
I confess that it's often hard to perform to order and I am still nervous of living visibly as a woman in my new location so I am usually somewhat androgynous. Today, though, I felt so ugly that I have deleted all the unmasked selfies. So I remained close to home rather than hitting the bright lights of the town centre, but it's a start. Maybe I should go out again at midnight to post a letter. That's another trans tradition, after all 😏.
Trans people exist and always have, we are real, we are visible.
But let's hope Covid dies off. We can do without further pandemics.
A dip in the archives
My post about TDOV 3 years ago had many much better photos of me and my friends visible in public so here's a link to it:
