It may seem odd that a support and developement organisation is celebrating Halloween, but we kow how much it means to so many people exploring their gender. There is no one true trans narrative. However. many Trans people make their first steps into expressing their true self on nights like Halloween.
If this is you, today, wondering if you can wear a costume that is actually less of a costume than the gendered clothes you wear each day, perhaps excited, perhaps petrifried, and most likely a combination of so many emotions you cant name them, we have a message for you; You are not alone.
The moment of embracing your identity is not always about one single flash of inspriation, a sudden “lightbulb” which changes everything. It can often mean tentative steps, hiding what they mean, even from onself. For this reason we believe it is important not to condemn gender play, drag kings and queens, and older iterations of gender non conformity.
So, tonight whoever you are, and however you mark Halloween, remember, its OK to Be who you are.
