An essay which started to be about Pride, but where I found that I had another, better word to describe how I feel about being transgender.
I will fight for my rights until my dying breath (which, let's be honest, feels a lot closer now than it did before); I wish I didn't have to. But I need help. I am under attack, and I'm sounding the alarm.
