Jessica Platt

Jessica is a professional women's hockey player, playing for the Toronto Furies and, now, she's the first openly transgender woman playing professional sports.

I'm seeing more and more of these stories every day as people shake of their fears of rejection and bring their whole selves to the front.
 
The other thing I really like about this story is that she's playing hockey. How Canadian! I'm also really happy to see that the CWHL and her teammates are very supportive of her journey and I hope this will be another journey that helps to show that the trans experience is a human one.

How did she come out? Well, it's quintessentially modern...

Not Controversial: He's a Bigot

Incredibly disappointing, and deeply frightening, to see that the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives have allowed a bigot to testify as an expert on a subject that he has no expertise on.

Two months!

Time flies! I wouldn't necessarily say "when you are having fun" with that, but it's actually been pretty good, especially as the weather is getting better!

Three Years and a Lifetime Ago

Today is the 3rd anniversary of my sharing my true self with the world around me. I feel like that means that it's not a bad time to reflect.
