I usually end the year with a review of my adventures as a trans woman but, truth be told, there have hardly been any adventures this year! I dress as a woman all the time now, even if I am not presenting as a woman. Yes, it's complicated, but that's trans life for you. So I've been buying a lot of clothes.
I think I might use this one as my avatar in 2023:
I was also excited to be sent some photos of past events by KD and there's another of those below. I must make a proper archive of pictures so I won't have to keep coming across them randomly!
The world as I knew it has gone now and the troubles we face are characterised by extreme nationalism and that brings a lot of transphobia. That said, it's the ruling élites who are transphobic. I have repeatedly said this year, despite the abuse and onslaught of transphobes - from TERFS to religious clerics to dictators - that actually the public has worse things to worry about and do not share this hate for trans people. I am cautious but I think we will improve our position, as recent political moves show.
Covid is reducing and it has now been possible to start eating out again and going on holiday. I have just got back from a lovely Christmas holiday in France with friends (more on that in the new year). I desperately need to travel again after three years of Covid restrictions and I hope that 2023 will be a year of exploration.
Thanks to all of you who have left comments this year. Thanks also to sites like T-Central and FeedSpot for promoting trans blogs like mine. And to the other trans people who blog and vlog about the trans experience.
Let me and the Christmas Kitten I saw in France wish you a good New Year celebration and a coming year that will be better all round.
