I know the 10 year challenge ended like 2 months ago but I saw this old photo and could barely recognize myself. While everyone around me is doing gender transition photos, I want to show more photos of presentation changes. Transition is so often represented in finite terms. However, the fact is that we’re always transitioning. It’s not just one side to the other, it’s more like a constantly flow of day-to-day transformations that we use to grow closer to who we want to be. My transition into gender nonconformity may have had a greater impact on my life than socially or medically transitioning. I felt uncomfortable with my feminine clothing but couldn’t figure the root of the problem for years. There was an utter lack of representation of other gender nonconforming trans women in the 2000’s. Eventually, I realized how much more confident I was in clothes designed for men. The act of wearing clothes for anyone besides women may delegitimize my gender to the public but I’m not here to cater to those who demean trans people. I’m here to create the representation I didn’t have as a teenager while working with others to reclaiming our narratives.

Since it's been awhile: 1.3 years vs 2.7 years.
A lot has changed in between these two photos and may it keep changing! I work three jobs now, I found out I have Thyroid Cancer and need surgery, and I'm pursuing a Total Hysterectomy once I'm recovered. Plans I've made have been disrupted but if you change with the disruptions you'll get on track again. More likely than not, we get where we want to be but in ways we didn't plan on getting there by. Coming out on the other side of your new pathway is the beauty of it.

For those who don't know much about me here's a little insight:
My name is Alexander Austin Windross and I am a 15 year old trans and gay man. I came out as trans Feburary 5th 2017 so almost 2 years ago
I started testosterone on October 24th 2017 (I was 13 turning 14 at the time). I suffered and still suffer from dysphoria, it has been something that has shown up even in my younger years even if at the time it wasn't recognised as dysphoria
I am the youth head of a city funded youth group and work towards making differences within and outside of my city.
I made this account January 14th 2018 to document my transition and show just how 'normal' I am. I am just a 15 year old kid living his life, I just happen to be trans and gay and that's something I live with but it doesn't define me
My life has been tougher than most but I push through, because at the end of the day I know it will get better, one day I'll have top surgery, one day I'll be 100% happy it's just a matter of time
I did one side of my face using only prestigious makeup brands, all the way from my moisturiser to my brush to my lips! On the other side I used more affordable drugstore makeup... who can tell the difference!? 💋💄✨
I’m 23 today! @courtnichards took me to breakfast and then to the aquarium! So here’s me very happy after getting to see the penguins 💕 I ended the day by going to my brother’s house for Thai food and cake! It was a great day, Dallas has been treating me very well 🙌🏼 •
Heyo Tokers, Happy Spring!💛 I had to take some snaps, before taking snaps,😉 of this Lemon Pledge nug😻❤️. This strain was sticky, tasty, and made the whole house smell of lemon🤤. I found 🍋 Pledge to be a great daytime strain!💛 What is a strain you all love right now?
❤️💛💐Much Love&Happy Tokin💐💛❤️
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking in and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone 🙈 @heir.rich
This is a small sample clip from an upcoming Princess Leia JOI+CEI video I’m making. Of all the iterations of Leia, of course I pick slave Leia, lol.
Anyway, this is my first time ever attempting anything like this. I hope it’s not terrible!
I forgot all about posting tbh.. I was drawing and i got carried away and i never actually made the edit for today. (I made this edit yesterday but i forgot to post it) i may or may not post an edit for today but I'll definitely post tomorrows edit.
