Always Evolving

One of the aspects of being transgender is that you're always evolving. I expressed this point with a group of my trans sisters the other night. Just when you think you have something figured out, something comes along and squelches that thought. 

Trans is a prefix which means 'across', beyond' or the 'other side'. In my case, the other side is the best fit. I know what it is for women to go through some of the stuff that they do. Getting less pay, the feeling of being second class, and the demands to always look young. Trans gender women are still looked upon as novelties but that's changing , albeit slowly.

I have enjoyed life much more since coming out ten years ago. Just recently I saw how much I have changed and I didn't really notice it. When I sense a major shift coming into my life, at times it will cause me to ask many questions. Is it worth it? Is it some thing that will affect me and those around me? There are some questions that sooner or later I will have to answer.

Good News For Transgender New Yorkers

Victory! New York State Lifts Medicaid Ban on Transgender Health Care


March 19, 2015 - Transgender New Yorkers covered by Medicaid can now access the medically necessary health care they have been denied for nearly two decades! Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Department of Health have officially adopted a new regulation that ends the 17-year-old exclusion of transgender health care from New York’s Medicaid program

The new regulation, which formally took effect on March 11, eliminates a 1998 regulation which stated that coverage “is not available for care, services, drugs, or supplies rendered for the purpose of gender reassignment….” In 2013, TLDEF submitted a 38-page letter urging the state to rescind the 1998 regulation. The new regulation ensures coverage for many common treatments for gender dysphoria, the diagnostic term used to refer to discomfort or distress caused by a difference between a person’s gender identity and their sex assigned at birth.   -transgenderlegal.org
