A very long time ago, when i was just admitting to myself who i am, i scrawled out these lines.

ok...20/20's story on Jazz, the 11 year old transgirl was well done and refreshingly openminded.

Love 'n Hugs,
Merry Christmas to you all and to your families, and biggest hugs from your sister in spirit :)

So, i went out yesterday for lunch with my sister and some friends who were in town for the day. i have been trying to venture out as myself more and more. even when dressed down, i'm starting to get recognized for who i am and it's gladdening. my point is, even though i'm sure i gave some of the people some interesting dinner table conversation, everyone around were unceasingly polite and in most cases, downright friendly. This makes me feel good, however, i do feel sad for others like myself in the world who aren't as lucky as i am.
According to the DSM V, Being Transgender is no longer a mental illness!
I had two very good days over the last week that made my heart sing. The first was at a party a week ago Saturday where i was truly myself in a social situation. i also wore a skirt for the first time. everybody treated me as who i am... not who i was. It felt right and was...
I received some disturbing news this morning and would appreciate it if you could take a moment and turn your thoughts towards Douglas R. Howe and send healing energy, white light and prayers his way? we aren't positive and are awaiting tests but he needs your strength against possible lung cancer... thank you all
I have been having a bad day, can't find the root cause and have spent most of the day retreating into sleep... oddly, the one bright spot today was watching The new Muppet movie... i'm not looking for anything...just observing the fact that the Muppets rock.
My bio Mother passed away 13 years ago and i do miss her, but when i came here i met a wonderful, loving, giving woman who adopted me and took me into her loving heart. Andrea Lena DiMaggio is Mother to myself, Diana Michelle Howe and two other loving girls, Aunt to others and Sister to many. But to me, the very new girl that i am, she is my Mommy and i love her with all my heart.
This is the first time i can say to her, Happy Mothers Day.
Love Always, Diana Michelle
Got a piece of fantastic mail today!
That is now my official name... and this is a huge step forward now.
So, Hi everyone, from my newly legal self,
Diana Michelle Howe
Yesterday afternoon i gave a talk at the local Metropolitan Community Church. It was for a Gender education outreach ministry they called Gender 101.
I posted the full text of my talk at my Blog, Looking Forward, Moving Forward( Latest Update ).
It was scary, it was wonderful and i feel in my own little way, i am helping others Like so many of ourselves.
I talked with two of the people i was resisting telling about my forward momentum today. My Eldest Sister and My Father.
A short poem i wrote about 6 years ago. i hope you enjoy it.
Ok, i know that by saying things like the title is a way to have the gods notice you, but... What an amazing freaking week so far.
Yesterday, i went to the Y for the first time in...well forever it seems. The fitness guide, Nathaniel, was an absolute sweetheart, he understands where i'm going and aside from some pronoun trouble, he is great... and sorry Dani... he is cute too. so I'm doing that again Wednesday.
I posted a new entry at my Blogger Account, Looking Forward, Moving Forward. please enjoy responsibly.
Well, this year i set it in my head that i was gonna fully transition, it being 2012 and all, i sorta figured if the world did end and i didn't get going, i would be very cranky in heaven.
That being said, i came out to six people at the !bingo hall! where i volunteer, so eep.
I told the charity managers on two of the four charities i volunteer with, one co-worker, one of the Hall managers, a runner i trust and think is wonderful and one patron who is a post op T girl... so either my trust is well placed or... things will get, shall we say, sticky... also, eep.
I hope i wasn't stupid,
To Everyone at BCTS, Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate
This is my little holiday tree, decorated by me and my sister Mel.
The Associaçá£o da Luta Contra o Cancer (ALCC) in Mozambique has had several great PSAs over the last few years, but this one caught my eye as a geekette...Nuff Said!.
Excelsior, True Believers!
Well the old year is over, now for an just over an hour, i begin my 48th tour around the sun... i want to give my birthday wishes to all here who feel the draw of the feminine. i want to thank all the readers and authors and the really wonderful family i have found here... my wish to you is that the dreams you dream become as real as you want them to be. happy birthday to me yesterday... and a day of remembrance today
Hiyo! your favourite little old News Agrigator Me, with sciency stuff on Physical Sex development... a fascinating read from Boing Boing.
Gender isn’t a simple thing. A person can be male, female, both, neither, and more–and that identity doesn’t have to have anything to do with the particular genital plumbing they were born with.
But the plumbing itself–the biological sex, rather than gender or socio-cultural sex–is also a lot more complicated (and interesting) than we often give it credit for.
Hello All who care to read this, i have read a lot of post recently (including my own) on depression. I, for one am glad people are starting to speak up about this potentially dangerous subject openly, as it can be deadly.
I have an offsite blog Looking Forward, Moving Forward where i write about T* issues and very often about depression and the gender gifted, but it is for everyone, no matter how they identify.
Happy Birthday Darling Lisa Dani,
Have the bestest day ever,
Love and big Hugs,
i have been feeling ...i don't know... it's not a colour... grim is a decent enough word. i'm trying i am... i mean if i cannot feel good without popping prescriptions or smoking herbal pharma... shrugs... i do what i have to do, my bills are paid... so i've been sleeping a lot... anyways (headshake) i just wanted to apologize in advance.
Hi ladies 'n gentle beings! 'Tis I, Diana, your loopy Moongoddess, anxious and eager to share a wonderful, beautiful look at the city i call home.
Toronto Tempo is a short time-lapse film that really shows off the T-Dot in a way that no recent film has.
I hope you enjoy a wee vacation :) when you get to veemo, probably best to switch hi def off as it slows down the stream... Anyways... welcome to my city!
