I really want my poly family to see this.
To the casual observer, this young couple look just like any other teenagers in love.
But pretty Katie Hill and her boyfriend Arin Andrews share a unique bond - they were both born as the opposite sex.
Katie, 18, spent the first 15 years of her life as Luke, son of a Marine colonel, while Arin, 16, was born a girl called Emerald who excelled at ballet dancing and won beauty contests.
Both struggled with their sexuality all through their childhoods and were teased and bullied but their lives were changed when they both began hormone therapy and later met at a trans support group in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and instantly fell in love.
Katie said: ‘All I saw was a handsome guy. We’re perfect for each other because we both had the same troubles growing up.

“Is it okay to be left handed?” - Campaigning, you’re doing it right
This is great.
Why can’t America do awesome campaign videos like this?
Wait, did they add in intersex to that? Awesome!
Beautiful. Is this an Oz ad?
Why do other countries win at advertising? Step up your game, America.
One thing that I am seeing is more and more support for young transgender people. As a sexologist I find this a very positive move.
Here is a link to some good questions about educatiing our educators about transgender and gender variant children.
Thanks to Amy Marsh for passing this on
I made a coming out comic for facebook. Have a happy coming out day, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Great way to come out
i <3 this. a lot.
My favorite part is the request to never use the word “tranny” - I hate that word and the connotation it always carries. I want to be better about asking people not to use that word. I want to be a better advocate of my transgender peers.
Voting While Trans: Protect Your Right
It’s important for everyone of varying gender presentations to make your voice heard during the coming elections. In order to do that, it’s important for transgendered and genderqueer persons to make sure their right to vote isn’t revoked through systemic or overt discrimination. I’m very lucky/privileged to present as cisgender whenever I please so I won’t face such overt or systemic discrimination when I show up to the polls in November, but many others won’t be so lucky.

Maybe the models in this Campari ad aren’t actually trans, but gender play like this is sexy as hell.
The message is applicable for a lot of people, trans or not.
How to tell a trans person they are beautiful.
Don’t do it right after I disclose to I am trans and you thought I was cis
Don’t do it with a condition that I shouldn’t change my body
Don’t expect me to believe you
Because I won’t
There’s too many messages throughout the day that tell me
That my voice isn’t pretty
That girls with facial hair are ugly
That my junk disgusts them
Tell me I’m beautiful
and I’ll politely say thank you
Tell me I’m beautiful again
and I’ll say I know
But I still can’t feel it
It only goes skin deep
Tell me that I am beautiful,
I always have been and always will be
Say it so much that I can’t just brush it off
Say it with enough conviction
That the next time I see myself naked
That the words
You are beautiful are tattood across my flat chest
Catch me by surprise,
Tell me I’m beautiful when I’m not expecting you to
When I’m not trying to be anything but myself
Don’t tell me I’m beautiful because I’m passing as something I’m not
Tell me because I am exactly who I am
Whether I like it or not
Let me know that I am beautiful
no matter what
I need this on my dash again, forever reblog
