Life is good and I have a lot to be happy about. It is so damn nice being allowed to be genuinely happy.

I’m happy I have great friends

I’m happy I am living in Austin, Tx

I’m happy I’ll get to see my kids soon

I’m happy I have great jobs

I’m happy I know Amy and she has such a huge activist heart

I’m happy my wardrobe is coming together

I’m happy I’m learning makeup

I’m happy I will get set up on safer hormones soon

I’m happy Austin, Tx is so weird

I’m happy self-care is allowed now

I’m happy Baily and Lauren are my friends

I’m happy the queer community in Austin, Tx is so warm and inviting

I’m happy I got an off afternoon today

I’m happy I am sleeping hard

I’m happy grief is being somewhat gentle right now

I’m happy I get to have my nails painted all the time

I’m happy to be moving into a stable house in a few days 5-1-18

I’m happy I get compliments at least once a day when I go out

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
