Two years since coming out

Olivia on her second anniversary of coming out

Yesterday was the second anniversary of Olivia’s coming out as a trans woman. I did not know her as Oliver. I met her about six months after she came out.

I feel grateful to her for all I have learned since meeting her. And I felt happy making her a cake somewhat resembling the transgender flag. 


She has a family that fully embraces her. They showed up on Zoom to mark her anniversary and remind her of their support. 

And there is no one more unconditionally loving than Olivia herself (and her father). I want to remember this in times less celebratory.
