The one constant is my curiosity. One night, curled in the safety of my warm couch, heart pounding, I Google ‘transgender’ and uncover a whole world I’d never known about.
– Kiebpoli

When I go to college, I get a binder. It’s better than nothing, but really it’s like putting a bandaid on a broken bone.
– Erik
