I came out as trans nonbinary officially and most recently (for my gender journey has been long and winding) in October of 2020. I started testosterone in March of 2021. It is now nearly December of 2021, fourteen months after my coming out and almost nine months since starting medical transition, and I still have people asking me, often in hushed voices and half-sentences, if I’m, you know, all the way trans?

“I thought you were nonbinary, not trans!

“You’re trans?”
