Rest In Peace

Submitted by Kurt, the photographer.

“This is me before I started presenting as male. I look back at some of these photos, and I can no longer make the connection. It’s as if that is someone else. I realized just now that I need to get over this grief I have over her if I’m ever going to accept myself for who I am. I’d like to think that in a parallel universe, another dimension, she is living a happy life and that she will go far. Because I still miss her. And I still wish I was her, but I know that my need to be a man overcomes my desire for an easier life. So, I’m going to lay her to rest here, in a way. Take care of her.”
