You are using your religious beliefs as swords into the guts of those you should be “ministering” too and I’m not surprised you can’t see this. You see growing up in you I saw it time and time again that you really could care less about social justice. You even told one of my friends that being a social justice warrior is a curse. A curse? How? Because didn’t the Jesus you love so much go around and love on everyone?

Here is why I am mad. I’m mad because I was lied too my entire life and forced to live a fucking lie for 27 years. That’s why I’m fucking mad thats why I write because I was fucking lied too and no one at ywam gives a fuck. Clearly.

The suicide rate for Trans folks in families that don’t recognize them is double.



I beat up on ywam because I saw first hand what it’s really like. I saw the contradictions. I saw the mess of wire behind the stage and now I’m calling that pile out and Cleaning it up. Sharing my story so I don’t end up dead because the voices are too loud. The more I write the more the voices go away.

My parents voices.

My leaders voices.

My Co workers voices.

My main leaders voice.

All so loud and so hateful.

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.
