Tired… So tired…

Disability rights

Black lives matter

Lgbtqia+ rights

Gun reform

Able to eat with out going poor

Able to get meds no questions asked

Why is it so hard for a Christian to understand this is the foundation in which Christ supposedly laid? I mean even if you do think I’m going to hell the least you could do is try and understand. That’s just lgbtqia+ rights but what about disability rights? Marriage equality isn’t finished until folks with disabilities are allowed to marry with out loosing their coverage. What about the prison system and how it is institutionalized racism having mainly black folks and POC? When is that going to change and instead these prisons get filled with sexual assault predators? With a minimum of 20 years no parol and no bail. Give women a voice and start locking predators up. What about gun reform? Before the next shooting let’s get gun reform instated just solid background checks with a 3 hour counseling session to see if the person is fit to carry a gun. What about food that is affordable and food that keeps folks alive and healthy. What about meds that folks need to survive? Why are they so hard to get when is this going to change when are we going to learn how to enjoy life for the first time ever?

These are all things that are consistently on my mind racing back and forth and it is a giant mind fuck that I was a part of evangelicalism for so long and played that part so well. Like this is really screwing with my head and I’m so tired I’m so annoyed and I’m so over this. Being apart of evangelicalism I learned that Jesus supposedly said to love the marginalized no matter what to care for them to allow the orphans and widows in to be accepting of everyone to love unconditionally. We have lived in a conditional kind of love since the vary beginning and it is making me crazy.

How do we change this?

How do we come out of this alive?

How do we remain sane?

How much more resilience do we need?

How many more tons of this do we have to endure?

How is any of this acceptable?

How is basic human right looked at as privilege instead of RIGHTS?


I’m so tired.

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.
