[Description: 1) a brown round queer as gnc person holds a colorful placard on a orange & purple floral malong. They have a MCS mask on and are holding their cane as they sit. It is very sunny on a park bench. 2) three trans & gnc brown people sit on a bench during #tdoa2016. They range in size, style, gender, skin shade, & spirit & still oddly have similar hairstyles. To the left, @gelenifontaine wears a stripped green & blue shirt with placard, “Honor Sick & #Disabled Trans & #Queer People of Color.” In the middle, @amitaswadhin wears a black T-shirt that reads “Demilitarize the Police.” I wear a placard “Brown Trans Disabled Liberation #sdqtpoc” & hold my cane.]

    On my way to my gender affirmation surgery!!! Many feelings of nervousness , excitement, worry and joy. 
    Before she asks me my name or what surgery I’m having, before she watches the slope of a signature, the nurse asks me where I’m from, am I from the Philippines? When I answer ‘yes, my family is’ semi-formally in Tagalog, her face perks up. More questions– do I have any more piercings? Where’s your family from? What language do you speak? Lastly, she reads paperwork after clearing her throat, the syllables like an assured announcement: ‘FTM top surgery…’ From this she looks up & smiles with a ‘please sign here.’ In my gown, as beeping & footsteps hum in the background, I give my chest a pep talk, an (un)grateful farewell. it’s not a talking to, just resolution. It’s a basic goodbye. The kind of honorable
    glare you give a worthy opponent, a cordial enemy, a family member you acknowledge between battles where love isn’t exactly the word you’d ever use. To long-awaited pivots of the body & spirit! To my sweet care team in FL., bae 
    @thesoniag, homey @cheffresh82 , & fam on call, @whatsmanishdoing . Thank you @aemiliusmilo_ramirez for holding me, for @rommyyy123 being on dog uncle committee, @gelenifontaine for medicine & daily affirmations. Thank you to every person who posted, donated, sent intentions, & care my way. Community uplift & interdependence are real. I’m getting a surgery I actually deserve! Soon, dear body: we’ll be something more familiar & maybe even surprising? Yes, let’s do this….
