Day 298 – The Prince of Darkness

I updated the About Me page with a biography about my experienced growing up. It talks a little bit about my past as well as how I came to realized that I was transgender. I will be making a factual timeline detailing the different steps in my transition. I hope you enjoy this photo taken when I was 2 year old with Scooby-doo in Disney World. He was one of my absolute favorites.

Edit: Turns out the photo was taken in Universal Studios, NOT Disney. Silly me. x.x

    Such an adorable picture. But what was Scooby-doo doing at Disney World?

    The new about page is wonderful.

    You know, that is a really good question. I guess things were different back in 1991.

    Yeah, things got different the day I was born in 1991, sugarlump. The stars aligned and my mother pushed me into the world. I was born with one red eye- a sign, perhaps, that I was going to have an eye for a certain ginger. Hurrhurr.

    Love your About page. It’s awesome! Almost made me cry. Almost. ; w;

    Hate to disappoint you, but that’s not Disney world.

    Hanna-Barbara/Warner Brothers would never allow nor licence their properties to Disney. On the other hand they are associated with the 6 Flags amusement parks and in 1991 they opened a brand new attraction at UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA (aka: Orlando), featuring Scooby-Doo.

    My mistake. I was looking through my moms old photos and it was in a folder titled Disney, it makes sense that we also went to universal while we were there.

    Love the update in the about me section…I feel like many people are hesitant to show pics of their “old self” but it really gives great perspective to one’s transition (I think so, anyway). Thanks for sharing and I enjoy your blog!

    Thanks Tracy. I think it is important to embrace who we once where rather than be ashamed by it. If society doesn’t see trans people in public, it is never going to be able to understand and accept us.
