Wow. Thanks for sharing. I was a teacher too. But I worked at an IB school in Seoul while I transitioned. That last year was horrifying and hard. I ended up going to grad school after, but I’m kinda sad about teaching, I think I was really good at it and I miss my kids. I got outed at work and had that same discussion with my principle. What a horror story. Anyway, glad you made it out. I also used to rock the bow tie. But, by the end of the year nothing fit properly and I just gave up on them. I am sure I looked super weird in my same three bagged out plaids with a mass of curly hair, long nails, and laser burns. ☺

I’m trans, a PhD candidate in Gender Studies, and a researcher.
