That was really positive!



So, fears for nothing, my phone meeting with my new doctor was amazingly positive!

Things started off just right when she asked me my preferred name and pronouns. Great way to set the stage for the remainder of the conversation which, to be fair, was the usual dive into medical history (or lack thereof) and basic general habit questions. Happy, still, to be able to say I quite smoking 9 years ago.

What was really great, from my perspective, is that this clinic does it all with transgender clients: HRT, assessments, help with name and gender changes, GRC referrals, and more. It's really comprehensive and she was really good at describing how they work. It wasn't a long session, not even quite a half hour. but it was informative.

So, next steps... blood work. Feels like I am actually getting closer.

Eaton Centre tells us we're not welcome

When I talk about inclusion in my workplace, I talk a lot about how the space I have worked in was inclusive. From gender neutral (and not repurposing) bathrooms to Pride related content, and more, the space was designed to be inclusive of my community. Enter Cadillac Fairview's Eaton Centre.

What-to-Wear Panic

I am amazed, but it seems that I have this "what I am going to wear?" panic in spades (sometimes literally, given my addiction to Kate Spade) and it's cropped up a few times recently.
