Mamas Nurture Grew My Love

Fully realized 😍! Thankful to the healthy first beginnings I shared with my young mother. How she (begrudgingly breastfed, cuddled, hugged, and sweet talked me) as I developed. The language was love in a less than favorable environment. A language, I translated to cultivate my own love experience. And no matter how the foundation bottomed out, the love she passed along did not. Gace face. Sharing for you mama. Rest well lady.

Singer R. Kelly's Child Transgender and Loving Life

“She was very proud of me. I was like, ‘Thank you, Mum, for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’ And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that.’ One of the most non-judgmental articles out there about Jay.

The Spirit Never Truly Dies

An African proverb reads-“no one is ever truly dead until there is no one left among the living to remember him.” Thank you all for comforting each other and sharing in the memory of Maya Angelou’s transition today. My pop, Magdalen, and Layla nourished my body with delicious food and talks over dinner. Sonya honored her in a moment of silence at dance rehearsal and we dance and drummed in her memory. The love. That is the legacy I wish to leave. I love and love so hard. Rest in Power Mama Angelou. ❤ Gracie
