Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I am an androgynous person who is not fully out yet. Sometimes I dont feel comfortable in my own skin. Sometimes I just want parts of my body gone because they feel wrong and I cant stand it anymore. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong body.

In the Life Transgendered photo essay.

    I feel for you! I spent 7 years binding my chest. I couldn't breathe... felt like I was being crushed. I had welts and blisters from where the binder gouged into my skin. It was such a relief to finally have the surgery in 2001. I hope you will be comfortable soon, too.
