Grab yourself a coffee, beer, protein shake, or beverage of your choice, and take a seat. Please allow me to introduce myself. I promise I’ll try not to ramble too much.
My name is Jasper, and at the time of starting this blog, I’m 28 years old. I was assigned female at birth, but have identified as male for years, and am still going through the process of transition. I’m vision impaired, and have a mildish hearing impairment in one ear. The hearing impairment is a bit of a long story that I’m sure I’ll tell you one day. In fact, I’m sure there will be quite a few long stories to tell. There are so many things I feel need to be said and stories that need to be told, and this seems like the best place for it.
I don’t yet have a complete picture of what I want this blog to be. There are things I want to share about being a trans man with a disability. There are plenty of human rights issues that I really care about for myself and others. Plus, I’m a bit of a gym junky, so I’ll probably end up talking about some of that as well.
I intend this site to be a safe space for myself and everyone who comes to read my posts and discuss them. Any forms of bigotry will not be tolerated. There will be posts to help people understand how to keep this a safe space. I’m also doing all I can to make sure this site is accessible to everyone. If you are using a screen reader or any other kind of assistive technology and you’re having trouble accessing my blog, please let me know.
There’s going to be quite a variety of topics for me to post about. I hope you find some posts that interest you, and that we can have some awesome conversations in the future. See, I did try not to ramble too much.
