Fuck Wednesday’s

Wednesday’s are always rough, in ywam Wednesday’s where always painfully exhausting. Especially one Wednesday close to the time we left. I was sitting in a staff meeting and this conservative politician was taking about how god has ordained trump to be president without knowing trump was gonna be president. This guy took the whole staff and had them raise a fist and chant trump trump trump…

What the Fuck? I walked out of that building faster than the road runner and got in my car so I could breath. Chanting trump did it for me it was in that moment I knew we had to leave or figure something out. We couldn’t have the kids in that environment it was dangerous.

After the meeting my leader called me and set up a one on one for the next day. We met and talked about me leaving and that trump was sent by god. During the one on one I got scolded because I didn’t vote for trump. I saw the debates I knew he was shitty.

So much trauma so much pain so much regret.

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.
