''I've only been on hormone therapy for about eight months now, so there's been definite changes, and I feel so much more comfortable than I've ever been.... It came down to realizing that I've got to live my life for myself: Life is short, and life is precious, and this is who I am. I finally need to be who I am.... I felt male as far back as I can remember.... A lot of F-to-Ms end up doing a stint in the lesbian community because it just kind of 'makes sense.' ... At 13 or 14, I was real clear at that point that I was attracted to women. So, I was like, 'I'm attracted to women, I am a woman, I guess I'm a lesbian....' Who you're attracted to has nothing to do with your gender identity.... Life is just really great now. ... If by being public about it, other people can see this and not have to struggle as much as I did, then I'm really happy to do that.... I've been an activist in the LGBT community for a long time. I don't really think that anything has changed. I'll continue to do this. I'm just a little bit more on the 'T' now, than I was on the 'L' and the 'G.'''
