My first blog!!

Greetings new friends! Welcome to my first step into the wonderful world of blogging. A little about me; I am a 23 year old non-op/pt african-american transgendered woman from Cleveland, OH. I am a college graduate pursuing my doctorate in student development, I am a professional DJ as well-still awaiting her big break in a world dominated by men. This blog, is going to encompass my lifelong and daily struggles of being a transgendered person and still trying to establish a balance of a part time and possible full time lifestyle. I will be discussing all sorts of music, history, current events, fashion, and personal struggles-this will be a very sharing and worthwhile experience (I hope). I am more than open to all of your comments and support, it can be lonely out there for a girl like me; so I'm hoping some of my readers will be able to share as well. I am always up for a great conversation, so feel free to contact me! Well, that was painless enough, so buckle up boys and girls-here we go!!

Lola,
Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging.

The best thing I ever did short of startybg tranbstion was to take Jordana's advice and start TransGriot.

Just follow your heart and write what you fell and know about, and you'll be surprised how quickly you'll develop your own signature style and blog writing voice.

Hey, the more transsistahs telling their stories, the better. ;)

Cleveland, Ohio????

That's my hometown. I left there many years ago but i keep a soft spot in my heart for my dear home of Cleveland.

Always good to meet another transistah.

Congrats!

Welcome to the black blogosphere!

If you want to see a list of all of the black blogs, there is a blog named Electronic Village that keeps a list of more than 2,000 black blogs!

There is also AfroSphere which I am sure you have heard about.

I don't know of any list of blogs hosted by transpeople so maybe you can be the first to start up the TransBlog Sphere!

Congrats again on starting your blog! (My blog is new too ...only four months old!)

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
