Profile: Elissa Mahatma

You can call me… Elissa Mahatma.

I identify as… a butch trans-lesbian with a feminine streak.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … female all the way, the only time I respond to the old name/pronoun is when I’m on the job. In my line of work, being uncommunicative isn’t an option (baking & pastry student).

I’m attracted to… I’m still figuring out my sexuality, but I’m attracted to women, especially other trans-women.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that people are so much more than the single facet that you see at first glance. You need to get beneath the surface to see their true beauty.

I want people to understand… as much as I prefer that everyone gets my name and gender correct the first time around, I feel even better when the people who don’t, automatically correct themselves, regardless of who they’re talking too.

About Elissa Mahatma
I’m a 19-year-old lesbian in culinary school going for my BA in Baking & Pastry. I’m a geek, gamer, and all around nerd. I love Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Wars, Halo,…etc. I live everyday holding my head high, proud of who I am. And oh yeah…I almost forgot, I happen to be transsexual :)
