Best day of my Life

in Arts & Culture/Features by

In early fall of 2009, I was given the pleasure of interviewing  Michael Crummey. One may say it was the best day of my life but I have since been married and given birth, so I should just keep some thoughts to myself. He invited me into his house, gave me a strong cup of coffee and showed me the view from his completely original and creative living room. His kids popped their head out to say hello, and he sat and spoke as if the conversation was easy and swift and all those eloquent words just fell off his tongue. Meanwhile, I was sweaty, nervous, my brain was foggy and I cringed at every word I said and suddenly…

I am not a girl anymore

in Features/Op Ed by

The title says it all. Within the past few weeks, I’ve thought about it, and acted; I came out as transgender to my friends and family. I now know that that was the biggest mistake of my life. The happiest I’ve been in the past year since I’ve come out, first as genderfluid, then as demiboy, then finally trans, was a day when I was carrying groceries. I was dressed in a button-up and a t-shirt, baggy jeans and a beanie. I had just cut my hair short. I had a cough, so my voice was gruff and deep.
