Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility, and I’m glad to tell you – finally! – that I am the proud wife of a trans woman.
No, I haven’t changed partners. Jamie and I are every bit as happy as we’ve been since our first date in 2006, and we’re looking forward to celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary (gad, has it been that long??) this June. It’s simply that she has finally realized and is living as her real gender, and she’s changed her name to reflect her new identity.
And, may I say, she is now a lot happier. From a spouse’s perspective, it has been like watching a rose go from a tightly wrapped bud into a full, beautiful bloom. I’m thrilled, and excited for her.
Meet the new Jamie:
Jamie’s actually been “out” to family and friends for a bit over a year now, but didn’t feel comfortable coming out to the general public until fairly recently. So we picked today as the best day to make ourselves visible.
Please welcome Jamie, y’all.
