Today I am trying myself again on another sensitive subject: Being transgender.
For all those who are not aware of transgender people: They are those who are born in the body of one gender but are in reality the other. I know, it is difficult to get your head around what that might mean when you are born with the body of the gender you belong to.
A few weeks ago I saw a brilliant documentary (the link leads to an updated documentary about a transgender teen) on CBBC about a boy who was born in the body of a girl. He showed very openly and courageously what it meant for him. He also visited other transgender people and taught how different a transgender life is today than it was 30 years ago. I used to have a friend who started his transgender journey in that time frame and I know a little what it meant. Much has changed. Thank goodness. Still, there are many prejudices and often even outright violence against transgender people.
So today I want to celebrate the part of love with you that has to do with “gender”:
- celebrate your own gender
- celebrate the opposite
- celebrate a friend who is transgender
- celebrate something entirely different
you get the gist :-)!
Now my darlings: go, create and have lots of fun!
